We all know what to do when we go on an interview—right? Dress up, say hello, give a firm handshake.
There’s actually a lot more that you can do before you even pull on a suit and walk through the door. For starters, it helps to put some time in. Find out what you can about the company—that can lead to insightful interview questions during the actual interview. Then you can even plan out your trip to the interview, including the route and parking.
It never hurts to investigate the people you’re interviewing with, too. There are also some dos and don’ts, from dressing appropriately (a plus) to leaving your cell phone on (a minus).
Then, remember essential politeness. Be kind—to everyone and remember names. Be specific and be positive, and understand what the post-interview timeline is.
