Have a firm handshake, don't crush their hand but also don't give them a "dead fish".

Research on the company
Practice your answers
Prepare to ask questions during or at the end
Do that firm handshake thing
Wear a suit

Good Luck!!!

Look up key questions and prepare answers for them.

Example, "What is teamwork to you?", "When you come across a problem, how did you solve it?", "Are you experienced with Excel?" etc.

At least that's what the normal boring routine is here. I don't know what it's like in USA. Maybe people are more creative? But I doubt it.

If your hands shake fold them in your lap.
If you have really nervous jitters and you have hard time staying still just like wiggle your toes in your shoes (anything that isn't noticeable.) Point your body towards them so it doesn't look like your uncomfortable/trying to escape the room.
Some times the best answers are the most truthful ones so don't kiss too much ass.
Be sure to look at the person your talking too. But no wide eye'd Bambi shit.
Make sure your ready for a hand shake but only go for it if they offer/it feels right.
But the most important part is the handshake. If they shake your hand and your arm flops around it is literally the most unappealing thing ever. So have a stiff and firm hand shake.
*The most important thing though is to make sure you don't puke everywhere. If you can manage that you half way done. Good luck.*

I've been on both side and my recommendations would be
1. Know about the job you're applying for and what is expected of you
2. Know about the company you're applying for "safety culture, views of the company"
3. Don't get nervous and don't answer what you think they want to hear, answer honestly and have a discussion with the recruiter nothing worse than coming across as a yes man.
4. You hear it all the time but dress decently. People do judge your by your looks. A few months ago I gave a guy an interview for truck driver. Dude came late with saggy pants and by the time we were done with the interview his pants fell down when he got up to leave. Needless to say I recommended someone else for the job.

Do your homework and research the company. Figure out what their business is. What does the business sell or offer to its customers. How does the business operate. Who are the customers? Who are the competitors in the business? This way you know what it is the company needs you to do. It also gives hints on what not to talk about.

Be open minded always but especially during the interview. I've seen a lot of instances where the interviewer (who is not just someone from HR but the person's future boss) would ask them: Would you or have you ever considered doing ... learning a particular software, going back to grad school to take more classes on so and so, traveling the world, etc. The person would bluntly answer no. Well it turns out that that's exactly why the boss needed to hire them for and inadvertently sealed their own fate by answering that they weren't willing to work. Be honest, highlight your deficiencies if necessary, but leave the possibility.

Another one is, where do you see yourself in 5 years.

I like to work through some STAR interview method sample questions so I have some ideas if they ask me something similar. I also like to review my own resume and job history along with the most relevant roles and what they entailed just to keep it fresh in my mind. I also look up the company's website and learn as much about them as I can. If there's a knowledge gap somewhere I look it up so I don't sound stupid.

do not bite/chew on your fingernails/fingers

do not tap your feet nervously

do not try to kiss ass and agree with every question; if they try to talk down to you or your personal opinions (no relevance to work), you're probably better off not working there b/c it's a shitty and uneducated boss

if you don't know the answer to a question, make an effort to think of something logical but do not just spout bullshit; better to say you don't know instead of making yourself look like a dumbass

all that shit annoys the hell out of me when interviewing people

if they don't hire you, give them a qualeshia roundhouse kick

Walk in, grab interviewer by shirt collar, toss them across room, take their seat, begin interviewing them.
