First and foremost, I choose and decide what to wear because the visual impression is important when we meet someone for the first time. Then, boost the knowledge concern with the job position I had applied. Explore about the mission and vision of the company. Then, plan how to behave and how to talk properly.

For a interview job I prepare hard. For example, I read the rules or evaluation criteria. Then I try to organize every document and practice in the mirror visualizing the moment.
