Very interesting topic :))
I, myself, try to completely clear my mind right before the interview by playing with my rubik's cube or juggling.
It is also helpful to have a quick casual conversation with the interviewer prior to the interview to sort of feel comfortable and to eradicate any possible tension in the room.

<font face="Arial, sans-serif">Look up information about the company, its nature, workflow and culture, and for practical measures their financial situation and potential on the market, is the first step. In general there’s always a lot of questions raised from reading into such details, sometimes I have to write questions down. Some interviewers were kind of surprised that I’ve used a notepad, on some I’ve managed to land the job, some were inexplicably negative afterwards. I think it’s more about fulfilling the skill level required. When all found I had a great resume, that’s subtly revealing “you’ve got the job.” It’s said that being inquisitive helps getting a job, but honestly each interview is different. I never care for any questions left, it’s bad practice in my opinion, but I would like them to know; “if so I’d ask.” </font>
<font face="Arial, sans-serif">Next to the resume I’ve send, I use my extended resume with written key performances, practice to speech it. Telling what one has accomplished with jobs and what whey try to accomplish in the future, is sometimes helpful to avoid being asked about weaknesses, at least it seems logically redundant, but you’ll never know. I never expect to get the job or to be failing, all I have to stick with is trying to find out if this still seems right for me, and that’s exactly the reason I come to a job interview. Usually you’ll hear some days later anyways. In the meantime looking for other job vacancies, is just a sensible thing for me to do. </font>
