1. Visualize the emotional state you want to be in, for example, an eagle soaring over a calm mountain lake for confidence and calmness (this article explains it in more detail).

2. Adopt a power pose for two minutes before the interview. Go to a restroom. Doing so while waiting in front of the receptionist is not recommended.

3. Always accept a glass of water/coffee/tea when it’s offered, and drink at least a few sips.

4. Think up 5 questions about the company itself, and 5 questions about the position. Ask at least 2 questions at the end of the interview when they ask you if you still have questions.

5. Assume a second interview. Say something like, “Salary and work hours will be discussed in our second interview, I assume?” or “I am looking forward to our second interview.”
