Punctuality is crucial. Plan your route in advance, consider potential traffic or public transportation delays, and aim to arrive 10-15 minutes early. Being punctual demonstrates your professionalism and respect for the interviewer's time.

POSITIVE BODY LANGUAGE

Non-verbal cues play a significant role in making a positive impression. Consider doing practice interviews with a friend or mentor. Practice managing eye contact and non-verbal communication during these sessions so they can give you feedback and help you improve your body language.
