As someone who has been on both sides of an interview both as an interviewee and an interviewer, there are a few things I can suggest.

Dress smart, first appearances DO count. Make sure your shirt is tucked in, you aren't wearing clothes with holes or stains and nice shoes. Depending on what type of job you are going for either a suit or a collared shirt and nice slacks.

Be well groomed, make sure your hair isn't messy, you have brushed your teeth and you don't reek of b.o.

Be confident. Give a nice firm handshake when you walk in (unless it's a girl in which case a limp wristed handshake is okay) smile and exude confidence.

Be prepared to answer questions. The employer is going to try and put you on the spot and test you, make sure you do homework about the company and also the usual "why do you think you are right for the job" type questions.

Don't be afraid to ask questions yourself. This shows that you have a genuine interest in the job. Try to avoid asking about wages though as that might just indicate you are only interested in the money.

When you leave, thank the employer for the time and giving you the oppertunity.

Sit up straight, look confident, clear voice, be further with your answers, ask questions about things, research the company, know what you're talking about to a degree but most importantly when asked a question even if you know the answer take a pause before answering so that if you stubble on a question you don't know, it won't stand out as much if you rapidly answered and suddenly struggled on a answer.

My biggest weakness was the "tell me about yourself" question, I assumed it meant hobbies but later realised it was a talk yourself up question to see how confident you are.

It all depends on the job you're interviewing for and the person(s) who's interviewing you. Do not pretend to be someone you're not and also don't try too hard. The employer will see right through you. I know it's cliche, but you have to be yourself.

As long as you're dressed well, prepared to ask a few questions, and honest you'll be fine. Confidence is a must. If you go in there looking like a scared puppy, forget about it. You also have to smile from time to time, naturally that is...not forcefully. Also, give eye contact but don't stare into their soul. You'll have to speak clearly as well. Don't talk too fast cause that shows you're nervous.

Oh, try not to talk too much either. Remember, you're not interviewing them. Definitely do not be late for an interview. Get there at least 10-15 mins early, and make sure to bring resumes and references in case they ask you for them. Lastly, don't forget to follow up. I got my current job with following up. I had to call twice before they called me back. Don't wait to hear from them especially if there are other people interviewing for the same job. Then it will be too late.

You'll have easy interviews and somewhat difficult ones. So, good luck to you.

This is a crucial mistake. I've made this one. The interview was going well until I asked how much the job paid. His smile went to a frown and I knew I was done.

If it's a big franchise do some research on it and chuck some facts/history about them when answering questions.

Presentation is everything.. be well prepared and expect to be asked anything. My best advice is to stop and take a deep breath, especially if you get anxious.

When I was very young I went for a job and the guy asked me loads of questions, finally getting to the one about whether or not I have a criminal record. I said no, which satisfied him, but I couldn't help myself and proffered an additional 'Never been caught, innit.'

It was probably a shit job anyway.
