3. Practice interviewing. Be prepared to answer questions about your background, education etc. Always try to answer the questions in relation to the job your interviewing for.

5. Dress properly for the interview. If job seekers knew how important dress is they would always “dress up” for an interview. Even if the company is casual, look professional for your interview.
