  • Be on time, look professional via dressing on the conservative side, research abou the company, ask intelligent and thoughtful questions (i.e. what is the career path for this position? what do you foresee the challeges of this position? can you describe your ideal candidate). Be prepared to talk about your experiences and how you can contribute to the company/department. Rehearse the answers out loud. The more prepared you are, the less nervous you'll be on Monday. Good luck.

  • Look your best and always make eye contact and be polite. Make sure that you are eager to work and they know that.

  • Look every single one of them in the eye when you answer. Bring examples of your work. Don't smoke or wear perfume before you go. I can't tell you how many times people at my work didn't get a chance because they wore perfume, smelled like smoke, or didn't look in the eye. And once when I was doing an interview, one of the girl's answers to how do you handle high priority multiple workloads was "I just wing it." Yeah, didn't happen.

  • Make sure you look professional and know about the company. I have always been asked what I bring to the work comunity and what is something you need to work on. So have answers for both. Remember to smile and relax. GL!

  • Emmy curious - why no perfume? I don't mean those who bathe in it. Would a hint of perfume be bad in your opinion?
