Three things to always do (no downside):
1. Always solicit feedback, begin doing so as early as possible.
2. Always look for a way to connect personally with someone at the company you're applying to; recruiter, alumni, former colleague, etc.
3. Always aim to under-promise and over-deliver, especially when setting expectations with a client or boss.
