1. Go early, at least 20 minutes, so you will not be late. First impressions are important and being on time is an important part of a first impression.

2. Dress to impress — What does this mean?

a. Ask advice from others, such as your mother, father, friends, and teachers regarding what clothing to wear.

b. Always wear clothing is both comfortable and fashionable for the interview. Different interviews require different outfits.

3. Remember to tell the interviewer why their school or company has impressed you.

5. Come prepared to ask questions. This is when the interview gets interesting.
