Ensure proper posture by sitting straight and avoid leaning on the table when talking to the panelists. It's very important also to remember to bring your resumes with you in the event that they ask you about additional information pertaining to your resume and also to help you to prepare to ensure that you have all of the information ready to discuss at the time of the interview.
