Research
Learn about the company you’re interviewing with and have at least one question about that company or industry previously prepared. Tell your interviewer exactly how you believe your skills can help attain the company’s goals.

Rehearse
Practice in front of a mirror and with another person. Learn your lines just as if you were an actor. No matter how terrible your last employment was, don’t diss the company or your ex-boss.

Ready
Being punctual is critical! Allow 30 minutes for unexpected delays rather than rush in, harried and late. First impressions matter. Your interview clothing should be clean and ready to grab at a moment’s notice.

Review
Always follow up afterwards. It is a great idea to send thank you email or card thanking your interviewer for their time.
