How to present yourself during an interview
Try to avoid nervous habits during the interview

1. constantly licking your lips
2. moving around in your seat
3. saying umms... and ahhhs?
4. constantly averting your eyes from the interviewer

Your Goal during the interview
Exude confidence, you have the skills and experience to excell in this job.
Remember it is a two-way interview. You have to decide whether this position and company is the right fit for yourself and is align with your professional goals.

For full disclosure, I do work at a recruiting firm in Vancouver, BC but am not a recruiter..sorry. I do hope this advice helps!

Re: How to present yourself during an interview

Very useful tips.

In interview we should be careful in very minute expressions, because the interviewer will check every thing.
