    Mainly, go in with an attitude of confidence and "can do!", even if you don't feel that way. Direct eye contact is good, too (no, not physical eyeball contact!).

    Good luck!

    If they ask for one of your weaknesses, don't say that you are a perfectionist or that you work too hard. Those aren't really weaknesses :)

    Don't turn up late.
    Don't stutter.
    Don't fall asleep.
    Don't go to the interveiw dressed as an Emo.

    All the advice I can give. :D

    Getting through it without killing the interviewer is a plus...

    But seriously, just relax and be yourself. Don't work yourself up into being too nervous.

    What's the job? Depending on the position it changes how you should act in the interview?

    Yeah, if it's for murderous psychopath, killing the interviewer could be a good thing :D
