Don't Forget About Body Language

Remember to smile and give a firm handshake. Make eye contact with your interviewers to assure them your attention is focused on the interview. (Although if you happen to be distracted by a passing tray of beautifully grilled sausage on its way to the lunchroom, that’s totally forgivable!)
