We have additionally listed the below Takeaways for you as a quick reference:  It is OK to be nervous before an Interview, being calm and composed before the Interview starts will help you. Take deep breaths and visit the restroom before the interview.  Polished Shoes create a very good impression. Use the rest room to clean them if needed.  Your Phone should be switched off during the Interview.  Saying 'Yes' when asked for tea or coffee is OK if it will help you get refreshed.  Keep the Resume on the top in your folder for easy access. Carry additional copies of Resume.  Present your Resume in a respectful manner to interview panel.  Remember to come back to Power Pose while seated in the Interview.  Answering " I do not know this, as I have not come across this ever" is an acceptable answer.  While answering maintain eye contact with member who asked the question from the Interview panel.  Smiling when a difficult question is asked will help answer better.  Wishing the panel members good day with confident handshake at the end is recommended. Wish you a good luck for the next Interview and successful career ahead. BM English Speaking http://www.bmconsultantsindia.com BM Consultants India +91 8080721515
