1. Be confident about what you say.
2. Be well prepared for your projects and ask yourself what may be the questions and also prepare those answers so that u can themselves mention those points and say that I asked myself these questions when I was doing my projects. This makes interviewer understand your thought process and way of solving a problem. He may be impressed
3. Be confident about each and every point you mention in CV. Don't mention unnecessary points and complicate the interview.
4.THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT:
ASK AS MANY QUESTIONS AS POSSIBLE WHEN U GET A CHANCE IN A PROPER. This makes him understand that you are very interested in that company.
I didn't do that in one of my previous interviews and I missed that.
