In premixed compound, do not stir the compound too vigorously in the bucket this will leads to form air into the mixture, which will create little bubbles and craters on the surface.
Apply a thin layer of joint compound to the seam and then apply a joint compound over the tape with the drywall knife. Smooth the compound into place
Applying the second coat of compound takes more fineness than the first coat. Using the wider knife will able to finish of the imperfections caused in the first coat. Using the drywall knife apply a second coat of joint compound to each seam. Feather the edges of the joints and make sure there is no air bubbles present in it.
If you are able to spread smooth, blended layers of joints during the previous steps then the third coat could be easier to you.
