         make? What services do they provide? On your
         interview, they may ask what you know about their
         company.
    Wear professional clothing
         You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Make sure that
         your clothing is neat and presentable. Wear a minimal amount of jewellery.
         Go easy on the make-up and perfume/cologne as well.


    Arrive Early

         Never be late for a job interview. It makes a bad
         impression. Know the exact location of the interview and
         allow yourself enough time to reach your destination. It
         is advisable to drive to your location ahead of time.

         your schedule is open.

         your interviewer may be running late. Remain calm, be
         polite, and wait quietly. Although you have an
