1. Warm up

Did you know that your interview starts right from the moment you step into the room? Yes, that’s true. Your walk, gestures, and your body language (not literally) say a lot about you. For example, cold and sweaty hands are signs of nervousness which can be quickly detected by your interviewer.

Try your best to avoid letting your nervousness shine through. To help with sweaty hands, arrive at the interview location early and warm your hands under a hand dryer. This way, your hands wouldn’t get sweaty and they’d be just perfect to go.

2. Take your time

Psychology tips and tricks

You should take a little pause after they ask you a question. After all, it is not a rapid-fire round or game. Taking time to answer a question allows you to frame the best possible answer you can provide at that time and under those conditions.

Most of the candidates confuse “taking time” with “not knowing” which is completely untrue. In fact, it is more important to give a correct answer that shows your level of understanding. Just to be on the same page, you can actually notice the expressions of your interviewer whenever you are taking time to answer and act accordingly.

Other practice points that can help you nail the interview are:

  • Ask your friend for help having a mock interview and carefully structure the entire interview process.
