This video gives Personal Interview Tips in terms of manners and etiquette.
Other than the above video personal interviews are always tricky to say the least. You will be surprised to know that how your interview goes depends on the mood of the interviewer too. If the interview has had a bad morning at home then his mood is obviously going to be bad and that will reflect in his interview taking style. If the interviewer knows how to balance his personal and professional life they you are lucky. Else you will have a very ‘tough’ interview.
Other than the mood of the interviewer how your interview is going to pan out also depends on your mood too. If you wake up life, struck in a traffic jam, reach the interview just in time or may be 10 minutes late then the chances are high that you are thinking about why you got late to the interview than be mentally prepared to face the interview.
You enter the office confused and mentally tired. The interviewer has a negative opinion on you the moment he sees your crumpled shirt, confused face and weak body language. However strong you are in the subject of the interview you body language send a different signal to the interviewer and you have almost lost your job even before facing the first question from the interviewer.
