DO demonstrate your interest in the job—and protect yourself—by doing research on the employer, their products and/or services, their competitors, their reputation, and their financial status (you don’t want to be the last person hired before the layoffs begin).

Search LinkedIn, and search Google (using the News filter) to discover as much as you can about the organization, its management, and even their competitors.

DO prepare to ask intelligent questions about the job, the employer, or the industry. Having no questions to ask may show a lack of interest and/or preparation.

DO practice answering the most common job interview questions, with a focus on answers customized for this employer and this job. Keep in mind that the employer is most interested in how hiring you will benefit them.

DO dress the part—for the job, the company, and the industry—and err on the side of caution if you’re unsure of how to dress (i.e., dress more formally than casually). DO plan to arrive about 10 to 15 minutes early.

A late arrival for a job interview is never excusable. If you are running late, DO phone the employer to let them know. If you arrive more than 15 minutes early, wait until 10 minutes before the interview to present yourself to the employer.
