Interviews are all about first impressions. So here are some interview tips for making that first impression a positive one.
--Arrive ten minutes early to fill out any paperwork or to be accessible in case your interviewer is ready for you.
--Dress professionally and remember that overdressing is preferred to underdressing
--Turn off your cell phone
--Greet the interviewer and give a firm handshake
--Take a pause in speaking rather than stalling with "um"s or "uh"s or "like"
--Avoid over-using technical jargon to impress the interviewer
--Shake the interviewer's hand and thank them by name
--Send a thank you note as soon as possible following the interview
