Interviewers expect you to act differently with them than you would with your friends.

Shake hands.

Look people in the eye. 

No “likes”.

No “umms.”

No uptalk.

No giggling.

Remember a time when you were talking about something you really cared about.  Negotiating for something with your parents?  A professor?  A cop?  Get into that space and take yourself seriously. 

Sure, your friends would make fun of you.  But your interviewers will not.  Promise.
