When it comes to dressing properly for your soon to be new job is important that you do a little of your part by researching the company you are getting the opportunity to join, here are some things you can do; If you know somebody that already works for this company ask them about the dress code they utilize.
if you don’t know anybody that works there doesn’t worry you can simply drive or walk by the company and get a basic idea of what you should look like dressing at the time of your job interview.
For companies that you know that they don’t expect suits or ties opting for dressing casually would be the best choice. Examples of what to wear to a job interview would be Slacks or Khakis with button-down ironed shirt, matching color shoes and the leather belt would define your casual look.
Keeping in mind that the first impression is the one that counts make sure that you clean polish your shoes the day before to ensure well and great first impression, even the smallest detail can bring everything downwards if we are not careful.

Properly introduce yourself:
Looking at the interviewer at the eyes stand up and take one step forward
firmly shaking hands if this is the case introduce your-self politely.
Be polite to your interviewer and use their surname for example,( Hello Mr.
Jones, it’s nice to meet you, My name is Edward ).
Next, do not take a sit until your interviewer has done so or asks you to do so.
During the Job Interview keep an eye on the interviewer;s body language,
explain him (her) your qualifications for the job when you are asked, always
keeping it in a way that is interesting and relevant to the subject.
Wait until he or she completes a question or sentence before responding or
asking a question or making a comment.
Never Interrupt an interviewer, and if you don’t understand a question always ask them politely to repeat or explain it before you answer something not relevant to the subject you are been asked for.
After the Job Interview took place:
Always send a thank you note or letter after each interview, this looks professional at the same time it shows that you are polite and serious about the job and lets them know that you are expecting to hear from them by keeping in contact with them via letter or another method.
When sending an appreciation letter or thank you letter you don’t have to
mention your qualifications for the job since you already covered them at the job
interview, instead let the company and the interviewer know how much you enjoyed the interview and to meet them in person and also restate your desire for the job.
After all this accomplished just follow up with your potential employer by calling
them if you haven’t heard back from them, is recommended that you wait until the day after the decision date to do the follow-up.
DO NOT GIVE UP if you don’t get the job, instead always ask for constructive criticism for not qualifying for the job, is important to get their point of view so that you can sharpen up and refine your job interviews and follow up skills for your future meetings.
