  • A reasonably modern, clean suit.
  • Know your resume intimately.
  • Know your questions, answers, and stories (Practice)
  • Do a minimum of 10 to 12 hours of detailed research on the Company.
  • Form a list of 10 + great questions to ask (why 10 +? because inevitably, they will answer at least 5 during the interview), don’t be left with “you have answered all my questions, that is lame”
  • Work to this list and you won’t need ‘Hope’.
