  • Late for an interview? Being late, or not showing up at all, will not have a positive impact on your candidacy for the job. Always plan for the unexpected and arrive at least 10 to 15 minutes before the scheduled interview.
  • Limiting yourself to mail and on-line applications? Don’t stop once you apply. Follow up with a personal call to the recruiter of HR office. Research if any friends, or family work at the company. Network and get that foot in the door.
