Confidently open the door, and walks straight toward the HR. Don’t sit unless asked to sit.

Because here also HR is not checking your knowledge but he/she is checking your ability to answer the question how quick you are. These were some of the list of positive body language everyone must keep while attending an interview. Either you are fresher or a Experience holder. And at last if question asked by a HR like “Anything you want to ask to us ?” always answer ‘YES’
