Do your homework – not only on the company but on the interviewer (this is where linked in can help)

Create a comfortable environment – cut out all distraction, TV, phone, children, pets, etc.

Prepare your own cheat sheet – have the job description, your resume and a pad and pen for notes

During the interview…  Listen first…. Then speak
