Jack: Mary, this company is pretty good. I really want to have an interview.
Mary: Have you made an appointment with this company?
Jack: Not yet. Do I have to?
Mary: Yes, it's very important to make an appointment before the interview.
Mary: If you go to the company without appointment, the interviewers may happen to be busy with other things, and have no time to give you an interview.
Jack: Yes, you are right.
Mary: If the interviewers are not in the company, you will go there for nothing.
Jack: Sure. Why didn't I think of that?
Mary: $0 you should make an appointment in advance with the company for the interview.
Jack: Then how can 1 make the appointment?
Mary: You could directly call the company and arrange the time and place for the interview.
Jack: Ok, I see.
Mary: If you succeed in doing that, you must attend the interview on time.
