    9. Don't be scared to ask for clarification if you don't understand the question.

    10. An interview should not be one-sided. Ask your own questions.

    11. Bring a pad of paper and a pen with you to write down brief notes after each interview. Make sure to write down any points that you need to follow-up on.

    12. Ask for a business card or write down the interviewers name and contact information so that you can send them an email thanking them for the interview.

    13. Bring several copies of your up-to-date resume with you and make sure to leave a copy with each interviewer.
