While the college campus may be the perfect forum in which to exhibit your flair for the latest in fashion style, the interview is not the place to do so. Even though many companies have relaxed the internal company dress code keeping in mind the new economy dressing sense, interviews still follow the conservative standard. Don't buck the trend .
All the same, an interview isn't a beauty contest, but how you dress and your overall appearance almost always get noticed by the interviewer. Don't give the interviewer a chance to rule you out because you didn't feel like ironing your shirt or polishing your shoes. Dress in a business-like, professional manner, and you'll be sure to fit in wherever you interview.
It pays to research a company before you arrive for an interview. Employers say that they are interested in candidates who ask intelligent questions and are able to make intelligent conversation based on what they know about the organization. They are unimpressed by candidates who know nothing about the company, what the company does, or the position being offered.
A national survey by confirms that employers say the most common deficiency among job candidates is that they don't know much about the company to the extent of 45 %.
If you're preparing for an interview, you can find a lot of information about many companies, including links to their web sites (and information about products and services) online.Its best to read about the company that is interviewing you and its competition, group companies and target markets etc.
