Avoid this in an interview

Negativity. If you assume you won’t get the job, you probably won’t. This is shown by slumpy posture, a neutral or blah face, big sighs.

Desperation. Gotta watch the flop sweat and also only apply to appropriate positions.

Lack of confidence is another no-no. You don’t want to be overbearingly self-centered, but you do want to seem calm and assured.

And above all, avoid the “your search is over I am perfect” attitude. Interviewers like to think they have their own reasons for hiring, their own standards.

And they do! They will see through this type of behavior in a hot one.

I also advise against too much humor--and certainly don't tell a joke. Humor can really be killah in the wrong hands.
