How do you make a good first impression during an interview?
in many ways it depends on the person who is interviewing you. Some say that constant eye contact is really important, maybe I'm not a human resourses expert, but I once interviewed a group of people for a job opening (one by one), and the last thing I was thinking on was on eye contact. I was intrested in knowing: "who is he/she".
The good impression for me was to see people who knew how to talk, they where confident enough and didn't exagerated any answers, just the perfect balance.
My dad used to interview new recruits for the fire service in England, and he used to say that the best thing to do, was to greet the interviewer(s) asking them how they are and such; and to sit upright with your hands on your knees, so that you look keen, alert and confident.
First of all, be on time or a little early. This gives you time to calm yourself and gives a good impression to the interviewer's assistant, often the interviewer will ask what their impression was.
Be dressed appropriately for the interview.
When speaking, look the interviewer in the eye, answer direct and avoid the word "like".
Ask your own questions, this indicates interest and being a self-starter
