- Do not act overconfident. It is always great to have a striking personality and attitude as it charms the recruiter in a certain way. But do not act in a manner that throws an aura of over confidence and arrogance. Be polite in your approach but confident and firm minded at the same time.
- Go through all the minute details about the company and the post you are being hired for. Be thorough with your basics, your intrinsic skills, and always stick to what has been mentioned in the CV.
