    hi

    thanks for the tips and iam also wanted to share some very imp don't do's

    Not preparing for the interview:
    Keep in mind that preparation always increases confidence. So do not face the interview without preparation. You cannot communicate without pre-interview research.

    Showing up late or too early:
    One of the first lessons in job-search is to show up on time for interviews. Many job seekers do not realize that showing up too early often creates a poor first impression. Arriving more than 10 minutes early for an interview shows that the job seeker has too much time on his or her hands. Always remember that your time is as valuable as the interviewer's. Always arrive on time, but never more than 10 minutes early.

    Poor handshake:
    In every place handshaking matters a lot. With the help of handshaking anyone can judge your personality. The shake hand starts the interview and that is your first opportunity to create a great impression. If you have delivered a poor handshake, it is impossible for you to recover it. Here are some examples:
    The limp hand gives the impression of disinterest or weakness.
    Only tips of the fingers shows lack of ability to engage.
    The arm pump shows overly aggressive salesman.
    Your handshake may be telling more about you than you know. Ask about your handshaking to your friends who are not afraid to tell you the truth.

    Treating the receptionist rudely:
    The first person you meet on an interview is a receptionist. The receptionist has the power to say about your positive or negative points before you even set eyes on the interviewer. The interviewer may also solicit the receptionist's opinion of you after you leave.

    Talking too much:
    Talking too much always creates a problem. To avoid over-talking, practice answering questions in a direct manner. Avoid nervous talking by preparing for your interview with role-play.

    Talking negatively about current or past employers/managers:
    The fastest way to talk yourself out of a new job is to say negative things. Even if your last boss was not good, never state your ill feelings about him/her. No matter how reasonable your complaints, you will come out the loser if you show that you disrespect your boss because the interviewer will assume that you would similarly trash him or her. When faced with the challenge of talking about former employers, make sure you are prepared with a positive spin on your experiences.

    do's will post soon

    thanks
