Being comfortable in the interview is an important part of succeeding. The trick is knowing where the line is. If the interviewer is introduced as Mr. So and So, don’t ask “Do you mind if I call you Bob?” The right approach is to appear relaxed while being extremely attentive to details. Slouching, mumbling, slang, cursing and so on are great in your living room, but misplaced in the interview.

The Web is full of great articles about how to ace the interview. Preparation, listening, good eye contact, dressing for success and relaxing are essential elements of a successful interview. The Glassdoor Interviews & Reviews section is full of great advice.
