It is very important to be the a part of the organisation where you have applied because the first impression will be based on how you look and what do you wear. So maintain your confidence and interact with people in a friendly manner.
Note: Be sure to carry your research and note the dress code of the organisation and dress to it, or slightly above it.
Be On Time
Being a Candidate you are expected to value their time and as well as yours. So being on time is must to avoid losing your chances of getting selected. Don’t be too late and don’t be too early, you just need to be on time.
The best example of being on time is to arrive 5-10 minutes early.
If in case you arrive little earlier you should find a place to wait and be nice to everyone you interact: receptionists and other administration staff as they play an important role in providing feedback to the recruitment panel.
Note: Being on time is essential. Don’t be too late and don’t be too early.
Greet In a Positive Manner
Finally when you enter into the interview room greet your interviewer enthusiastically and wait for the interviewer to extend his/her hand for handshake.
