The best tips I've been given and that I have used on interviews:

  • If you don't have an answer at that moment, ask for a little bit of time to think about it, or if it is possible to come back at that question later in the interview.
  • It is ok to bring a notebook with some answers prepared.
  • Dress for the job you want.
  • Always have at least one question to ask them at the end of the interview (or when prompted)
