and many more that i cant recall sorry
Relax! you may be in a suit or shirt and tie and it may be an interview, however the careers officers are pretty cool guys who can relate to your situation.
Do not fiddle with anything on you, or swing on your swingy chair! (i did this but got away with it still....it is not advised)
if you cant answer a question do not make up some random shit, 1. they know if your lying! 2. Most of the time there is only one answer.
be friendly and confident, there is a period on the way to the interview where you can make the interviewer your friend. Greet him/her politely and answer any questions they have in a mature and confident manner.
Good luck all!

Thanks man for this. Good luck with your AIB too.
I'm guilty of shuffling, so I guess I'd better work on that before my sift interview

I'm also a fidget - but I think as long as you make good eye contact and are not constantly jiggling one leg (bad habit which drives me up the wall) or twisting your hair around a finger (a girl thing - hair up and off your face ladies!) or doing something else equally irritating, then I would have thought you'll be OK.
Good Luck all

It's also harder to do if you cross your legs, as you'll realise you're doing it.
You of course need to be alert at the interview - but I can almost guarantee you'll be so caught up in trying to answer questions that it'll start without you noticing. So break the habit now.
Apart from that, IF I end up with you at the AIB or even BRNC if we're both lucky, you'll drive me insane if we share a table

Hopefully if we do end up at AIB or BRNC together, the problem will have disappeared...

haha yeah that is a bad habit, especially for an interview, but im sure you'll be fine as long as you do your naval research!
