3) What should I wear?
The rule of thumb is that you dress one level above the corporate culture or type of position you are looking for. Is the position normally where they wear jeans and a t-shirt? Then you should go business casual with khakis and polos. Do they wear business casual? Then you may want slacks and a button down (or skirt and polo for women). This takes a bit of research on your part, but the bottom line is that you can NEVER be too dressy when it comes to making your first impression.
4) How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
You can send your questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
