1. Know The Company And Their Objectives

Before you go for a job interview, take time to research about the organization you are going to join. Their main focus, their goals and objectives, what they have done and a whole lot more. For all, you know that could be the question the panel might ask you.

Copies of your CV, pictures, certificates, and other relevant documents should be kept in your email and on your phone. You never know what might go on that day.

6. A Positive Social Media Presence

It is very important to have a very good and positive social media presence or you might keep your social media as private as possible because employers nowadays go the extra mile of checking your name on social media and try to see what you do online. This could either make the employer recruit you or not.
