Career Center: Interview TipsThe Basics
What is the interviewer looking for?Regardless of the interview style used, the interviewer is looking for certain traits--benchmarks, so to speak, to compare you to the "typical" person who has been successful in that firm.
Things to Avoid:
Watch out for any habitual signs of nervousness (e.g., laughing, finger fidgeting, squirming, etc.). Everyone is nervous during an interview, but everyone can control the amount of nervousness he or she displays.
