Hi,

My list of DO's is the following

  • Structure everything you speak about
  • Maintain eye contact
  • Give rationale for every part of the structure e.g. I want to deep dive into competitors because of 2 reasons
  • Use top-down communication during the fit-part of the interview
  • Wrire neat notes that are easy-to-read and follow
  • Speak always, do not be silent if you do not know what to tell
  • Synthetize, what next steps are, what so-what's
  • Smile
  • Be confident
  • Make sure interviewer follows you by involving into discussion

For DON'Ts I will mention red flags:

  • Be silent
  • Argue with the interviewer

I hope that was helpful.

Kind regards,

Egor Iakovlev
