Do not act like a salesman.
When you go to a job interview, make sure that you do not go overboard with trying to sell yourself to the employer. Do not make the interview as a sales pitch for convincing the employer to hire you. It is better if make your credentials do the work for that. If you try to act like a sales man promoting your every qualification and impeccable job experience, you might come out as over exaggerating every bit of information you share.

For the most part, let your resume do the talking for you and just answer questions honestly that will further give light to your previous job experiences.

Use simple and concise language when answering questions.
The job interviewer will like to get to know you better as a possible job candidate. It is your responsibility to let them know who you really are. Make sure that the interviewer understands what you are saying by using simple language. Talking to impress by using certain terminologies can sometimes lead to confusion and misunderstanding. The job interviewer may praise you for your wide knowledge of the language. But they will not consider you for the job if they end up confused about what you are trying to say. Crude language can also have the same effect. Try to use simple language and answer concisely to avoid making mistakes when answering interview questions.

Make yourself likable.
During a job interview, you may also be judged based on your character. If you make yourself likable and friendly, you may have that upper hand, especially of you are among other job applicants with almost similar credentials. Among job applicants with almost the same credentials and qualifications for the job, interviewers and employers also consider character and likability for choosing the most ideal candidate for hiring.
