The people that interview you are going to be, in most cases, the people that work with you. Amidst all the preparation, what some interviewees really forget is to be likable. It’s not just enough to demonstrate that you have the chops for the position. People hire people they like. The competent likable people are who they remember at the end of the day, especially when 20 applicants were interviewed for one opening. So smile away, and jump on making a connection with your reviewer like you would a friend, not forgetting to reaffirm your skills as related to the job description(s) (which you should know down to the T).
Also, little details go a long way. When shaking hands, make sure your hands are warm (!) Cold handshakes can dampen first impressions. Either hold a hot cup of coffee before you go in, or rub them hot. Have thank you cards with you on the day of the interview. Once everything is done and you have their business cards, cross the street, go to a café and start writing your thank yous then and there. Deliver them to the reception desk and ask that they be given to each of your interviewers. They'll never expect it, which is a good thing, because no one else did it but you.
