Avoid distractions

To avoid distraction, try not to have any paperwork in front of you. It’s a good idea to have a copy of your CV and any other relevant documentation on hand, but keep it in a folder out of the way and keep the table in front of you clear.

Even if you don’t intend to, interview nerves may cause you to fidget with papers or to have your eyes on the paper instead of looking at your interviewers. It is also imperative that you turn your phone off!
