This cast gives our guidance on how to conduct yourself during an interview.

We've said it before, and we'll probably say it again, interviews are nerve-wracking. For everyone. In some ways it's like meeting your girlfriend's parents for the first time. There's that feeling of desperately wanting to impress and of being on your best behavior. We call the right behavior in that circumstance "etiquette" or "manners". Fortunately, etiquette rescues us during interviews too.

Debrett's Guide to British Behavior says of manners: Manners are valuable in this world for the simple reason that well-mannered people know how to set others around at their ease, know how to make the world feel a more civilized, friendly and calm place, and like to put others' comfort ahead of their own. Would you be more or less likely to employ someone who made you feel that way? Of course, you would be more likely, we all want to be around people like that. So, what to do?
