    Do a bit of research into the company, they might be impressed if you know a lot about them. Keep eye contact with the interviewer, and good luck.

    Sometimes a telling them ways to improve some of the ways they do things is impressive - you have to do t in the right way though - so as not to ofend, if done corrctly it just shows you are able to bring in a fresh perspective into a company.

    Research the company - I once was asked how many people I thought worked for BT. I said about 50,000 - another guy said 500,000 - I was closer!!

    Also I use a portfoilio in interviews - got the idea from watching models onTV going for interviews - their portfolio shows photos of them in different AD's and different looks, I did one of different websites I'd designed and past projects - it's so much easier to show people what you've done rather then to try and explain it in words.
