That site is garbage. "Believe in your inner self and the heavens will shine upon you" kind of BS.

Heres my tips:

1) Due diligence on the company being applied for. Know their products/services, competitors, market segment etc.

2) A good, firm opening handshake.

3) Be confident but not arrogant. You are there because you looked good on paper, so they expect competence.

4) Make eye contact throughout the interview

5) Ask intelligent questions and praise questions asked of you that are thought provoking.
