Dos

1.Be precise when you are explaining the nature of the job you want to have, and the projects at school that may be related to the position you’re applying for.
2.Be honest with your personal history and profile because honesty goes a long way, especially if you want to make your mark as early as in your first real job.

Donts

1.Don’t say anything bad about your previous employer, if you’ve worked part time before.
2.Don’t be fooled into applying for a job merely because of the salary. Research more about the position you applied for and the company so you won’t just sit there during the interview when asked if you know anything about the background of the company. Researching implies that you care about the position and you’re serious about the job. Also it tells that you are prepared.
3.If ever you pass the job interview, weigh your pros and cons first before deciding on taking the job. If you don’t think that the job wasn’t right for you after all, don’t hesitate to voice your concern. It would be much worse later on if you’re finally employed and have signed the contract then you realize that you really can’t survive the job.
