Leading the Interview
Characteristically, the interviewer will start the conversation with an open-ended question about you such as, "Tell me/us about yourself." The person in front of you is desirous to know a little about you. Also, this is the time he is going to pick up basic data about you and give a direction to the process. You need to grab this opportunity and you must impress him then and there. You need to identify which areas would you want to be questioned on and need to include these areas in your introduction. To do that, you must be clear about your strengths, weaknesses, career goals, the reasons for your interest in the organization or career and how you can make a difference.

You must understand and always appreciate the difference between what may be termed as 'up market and jargon-full English' and sound articulation skills. You need not have to have very good vocabulary but at the same time you must be able to articulate the most intricate concepts in the well-spoken fashion.
Be very particular about your body language. The interviewer is too intelligent and will always get to know if there is any discord between what you say and what your body says. However if you are honest and confident of what you are speaking you need not be concerned about your body language.
Always look at the eyes of the interviewer while replying to any query. Eye contact between two individuals one of the important sub-component of the body language. Never give secretive looks. And your response should be friendly without escaping eye contact with the interviewer. Never ever try to confront him. As you know, a candidate who constantly avoids eye contact with the panel does so either he is being dishonest or lacks confidence.

Any stance taken on an issue without sound reasoning would make you appear opinionated or as one who does not think deep about issues.
Any interviewer is always looking for an honest, intelligent and more importantly silently confident person who has no airs about him. The Mantra to a success is your assertiveness. Please note that assertiveness combined with politeness makes you a sure winner. But this is easier said than done. There aren't many challenges in our professional lives for which the above saying is not true.
