When applying for a job, apply as soon as possible. Do not wait for the dead line. If you are interested and the deadline has passed apply even then. No harm in trying.
11. Do not panic the employer:
Be responsible. Do not waste employers’ time in asking too many questions. Do not call again and again. Write down your queries and ask the employer in interview if he seems willing, otherwise do research by your own self.

Do not get discouraged by “NO” from the employer. Every job hiring is a series of NO then comes YES after a long time. Learn from experiences. Keep positive attitude always.
