2. Compare your skills and qualifications to the job requirements- analyze the job description and examine the hierarchy.
3. Prepare responses
4. Plan what to wear- go neutral and dress to impress
5. Plan what to bring- extra copies of your resume, a list of references
6. Pay attention to non-verbal communication- be mindful, be attentive, manage reactions.

Dressing for Interviews
Before you say a single word to the interviewer, you have already made an impression based on how you’re dressed. The guidelines given here are commonly accepted as appropriate for interviewing. Every company has a different dress code; how you dress at the job may have very little to do with how you dress for an interview.

Men should dress in a manner that is professionally appropriate to the position for which you are applying for. In most cases this means a suit. A dark-colored suit with light colored shirt is your best option. Avoid loud colors and flashy ties. Clothing should be neat, clean, and pressed. If you don’t have an iron, either buy one or be prepared to visit the dry-cleaner’s often.Your hair should be neat, clean, and conservative.

Women should generally wear a suit with a skirt or pants. Your suit should be comfortable and fit you well; if your waistband is cutting you in half or your jacket is too tight, you won’t look or act your best. Wear a conservative blouse with your suit. Do not wear bright colors, animal prints, or anything lacy, sheer, or low-cut. Make-up and nail polish should be understated and flattering. Keep your jewelry and hair accessories to a minimum, and stick to those that are not flashy, distracting, or shiny. One ring per hand is best.

While it may be appropriate to dress more casually for a second interview, you must still dress professionally. It’s much better to be too dressed up than too casual.
