If the company you are interviewing at is a creative space and they don’t have a designated dress code, the best thing for you to do is to stick to casual chic, or casual semi-formals. Dressing appropriately allows you create a good impression and puts you one step closer to getting the job.

Don’t act arrogant and over-confident
Being arrogant and over-confident can spell doom for you. If you are well prepared and have all the answers to the questions they ask you, answer as politely as you can. Being polite and humble will definitely have you with one leg in the company of your dreams.

Try not to be fidgety
Being fidgety shows a lack of confidence and the hiring managers might see you as a wrong fit for the job. Exude confidence and show them why you should be the one.

Sit up straight
Avoid slouching or yawning during the course of your interview. Sit up straight and have a broad and charming smile as you answer questions.

Don’t lie on the face or in your CV
If you lie, you will most likely be caught. Recruiters have experience and have done interviews numerous times. Be honest about your work experience and you’d be grateful for it.
