Interview Etiquette

You know how there's this whole etiquette behind the whole job interview process? There's all that official crap about how you should do some sort of snappy cover letter, a resume that makes you sound like a real go-getter, and in the case of designers and artists, you want to send some sort of samples, whether it be a link to your portfolio. Then if you're lucky enough to get an actual in-person interview, you're supposed to show up early, dress nice, have your resume and portfolio, speak clear, answer short and direct, shake hands, thank the interviewer, etc. etc. And then there's that other end that says you should write a thank you note or something after the interview. Well, on the note of interview etiquette, I believe that if you interview someone and say you'll respond within a certain time frame and never do, well, that's just plain rude.
