Comparing (see notes before)

    I think there are three things to consider. First, good impression is important. Actually, you might find many ways to do this. For example, it is suggested that you

    dress neatly and properly. Always

    remember to arrive on time and being confident. This will leave the interviewer a good image.

    Next, dont feel stressful. Frankly, everyone

    might be under stress before interview, but it will do no good. The alternative is to be relaxed and have a good nights sleep. Im

    sure you will do great.

Third, it is necessary to know your company.

    Do some homework about company so that

    you can be well-prepared for the questions. You may get these stuffs about the company on the Internet or newspapers.
