Try to stay positive throughout the interview. If you don't know an answer or have the right skillset try to put a positive spin on it.
Think before you speak. Think about what the interviewer most likely wants to hear and tailor your responses to that without seeming fake.
Know the answers to tough general questions like 'Describe yourself', 'What are your strong points' beforehand.
Have a detailed description of your past employment history ready and be prepared to answer questions about it.
It is best to respond to questions with specific points and examples. Vague or general answers come across negatively.
Follow up an interview when possible. Express gratitude for their time and continued interest in the position.
