When you are conducting an interview, there are a few important things you must remember. Your interviewee can often be nervous, so it is up to you to set the tone and atmosphere for the meeting.
The language you use, how you speak, your body language and your general attitude should all be taken into account. There are also certain etiquette rules and procedures you must follow.
