Alexander Graham Bell once quoted:
“When one door closes, another opens, but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us".

The world is full of opportunities but if you live in your past, you can't achieve them.
The interview is a session where you sell yourself but if you are not self-confident then you are not going to be selected. The report shows people going in an interview try to follow others then realising potential inside themselves.

What you do during a job interview is viewed as a sample of your work.
Here are the five mistakes people do during an interview that make them unqualified:

Coming too early or coming too late executes a bad impact on your personality.
Keep some extra time in your hand for mishaps to make sure you aren't late. and arrive on time, or even early. Budget your time so that you make it to the interview five to ten minutes early.

Your sense of dressing defines your sincerity towards the job. Wear a black suit with a formal plain shirt and grab the black oxford shoes which match with your belt.

Research about the company and the job, learn the skills and showcase yourself as the perfect candidate for the job. Background information including company history, locations, divisions and a mission statement are available in an "About Us" section on most company websites. Review it ahead of time, then print it out and read it over just before your interview to refresh your memory. Also check the company's LinkedIn page, Facebook page, and Twitter feed, if they have one.

Make your resume according to the job description. Avoid making grammatical errors in your resume and avoid lying in it. Fifty-eight per cent of employers has caught a candidate in a resume lie, while 31% of people admit to having lied on a resume. That’s a lot of lying. And, if you lie on a resume, you have to keep your lie up during the interview.

It's better not to do it.

Be professional in front of hiring managers because they are not your relatives. Smile, say hello, look them in the eye, and shake hands as though you really are happy to meet that person, and soon you will be.

Prepare yourself to ask questions from them, Not having any questions prepared signals you don't care, aren't curious, or haven't done your homework.

NOTE: Be curious about the result. So many people forget this rule of interviewing.
Show your respect by sending an email to thank the interviewer for their time and underscore your interest in the position. If you don't do it, hiring managers may think you're not interested in the job.
