Plan a Schedule: Be sure to be around 10 or 15 minutes early for your interview. This ensures that you cannot be late, and gives an excellent first impression.

Dress Appropriately: Avoid wearing a pair of sweats or anything revealing. You want to look clean, and presentable. Like the old saying "dress to impress".
