* Looking for a service job, "boost" the voice and chin at the end of each sentence, to look nicer.

* If a management position, use a "credible voice tone," which has "a cadence quiet, almost monotonous, and just down the chin."

* Sit up straight, and keep eye contact "frequent but not constant." You do not need to intimidate anyone. It is important to watch where: Stay in the "professional area": the bridge of the nose to the top of the front.

Answers to common questions

* "Tell me about yourself." Come prepared with a good story, writes Penelope Trunk Network CBS Interactive Business: "Tell him what is important to you, [and] tell in a way you can remember and pass on to others."

" So you can add to their salary increases provided, bonds and other benefits, without exaggeration. Lassiter advised to mention all these things, and then ask what the compensation package the company.

* Be specific when pressed. If the interviewer insists on knowing how much you earn, say so, advises Lassiter. Then ask what salary and benefits plan to give the person occupying the position.
