What To Do: Maintain eye contact but be wise in wielding its power. This way you can demonstrate that you are both confident and resolute in being good enough to get that job.
It comprises of a panel or Board of officers interviewing a single candidate. Together, they all judge if the candidate is suitable for the position available or not.
What To Do: Eye contact must be maintained with all members of the panel and it is better if you address each by their names at the time of answering. This shows that you are more interested and personable.
