Be on time and dress professionally.  This seems like a no brainer, but at all levels I hear stories of these being neglected.  Give yourself adequate time to find where you need to be, and be sure to have the phone number of someone there in case you get lost.   When it comes to clothes, a shirt and tie is a minimum.  And, please, do not wear tennis shoes… Have your resume and other documents prepared [...]
