> Have a great interview
When interviewing for a contract assignment or salaried position, you will improve your chances of success with thorough preparation. Before the interview, you should research three areas: the organization, the types of questions you'll have to answer, and the questions you should be ready to ask.
Don't be afraid to call up an organization and say, "I am curious about what you do and would like to learn more. Do you have any in-house publications or is there anyone who can help me? I only need a few minutes of someone's time."
Remember to thank your interviewer(s). Follow up immediately afterwards with a brief thank-you note expressing your appreciation for the interview and re-stating your interest.
