Ways to stand out in a job interview

I am currently interviewing with target firm of mine in the Capital Markets division, and I am looking for ways to stand out from other candidates. I have already moved on to the second round and wanted to "wow" the interviewer. I was thinking of presenting a market analysis on the Co-investments space (this is the position focus) or present a pitchbook based on a hypothetical case. I am a recent graduate looking to gain an edge anywhere I can and am looking for recommendations.

Thanks for your time!

PWM Hopeful, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Not the "one trick interviewers hate" type advice but simply being relaxed and acting like a regular, pleasant human being gets disproportionately rewarded.

Just had my trade dispute rejected by Schwab for a loss of 35k. This single issue alone should be a gigantic red flag to anyone who trades on their platform.

If they have a system error, and you do not video record your trading (they actually said this), they will not honour their fuck up. Switching everything away from them. Fuck this company.
