Create a good first impression

When you meet your interviewer(s), remember to make eye contact, act professionally and shake hands with your interviewer(s). It may seem strange but it is helpful to practice giving firm handshakes with family or friends.
During the interview, ask questions about the job, the work environment and anything else you think is relevant. That will show you are eager to learn more about the job and assess if the job is a good fit for you.
