·         At the end of most interviews, your potential employers will ask you if you have any questions you want to ask them.

·         Asking what your daily work life on the job would look like,
·         Asking about other ways you can get involved at the company in addition to the job description. For example, if you’re applying for a teaching job at the high school, you can ask if you can be involved in extracurricular activities too.

Dress professionally
·         The way you dress makes a statement about yourself. Avoid bright colours and loud jewellery.
·         Make sure to groom yourself well and to pay attention to your hygiene, too. If you don’t put time and effort into your appearance, it will show.

·         Sit straight on the chair and look into the eyes of the interviewer. Remember, you’ve nothing to lose and go with that mind-set. This causes less palpable stress.

·         Be Open and Honest 

When responding to the employer's questions, tell the truth! If you made a mistake, say it in a positive way, accept responsibility for it,

   Avoid sharing overly personal information. 

- Don’t talk about your significant other, your kids, or your personal problems at home; this shows that you’re not focused on the job and that you’re unprofessional. 

·    Make sure to thank your interviewers in person.

·         When the interview is over, show that you’re grateful for the fact that your interviewers took the time to meet with you and to get a chance to talk to you about Just say something simple like, “Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with me. This has been a wonderful opportunity and I really appreciate it.”
·         Don’t ask about the perks of the job before you’ve been given an offer. This will make it look like you’re more interested in vacation days than in working.

Even if your boss is a rude,    When asked a question, do not just jump to an answer just to avoid silence. Think, and then reply. It should appear that the answer is well thought through, rather than uncomfortably cobbled together. Lies can be caught if the interviewer pushes you a little
