So I got a job interview coming up and was wondering what everyone's experience or tips would be for preparing for an interview? I read a good article at http://aspiringmind.com/7-job-interview ... candidate/ and got the Basics down. Good eye contact, go in nicely dressed, be honest and remain relaxed. Can you guys share some tips and pointers as well? Thanks and happy holidays!

Madkhaos,
If it is a professional job you're looking for, I would suggest making up a resume (list of jobs you've held before). If this is your first job or the job doesn't pay a lot, the tips you list are fine.

Thank you, the job is relevant to my previous so it should be fine. Just wondering if there were a universal set of questions they will throw at me. Never had to do a interview... :D

In my opinion, in addition to knowledge about the company where you have a job interview, the most important is to feel relaxed and comfortable.

i know it's too late to answer it, but better late than never LOL :D

my suggestion is,
stay calm and relax, be yourself, be honest, pray :)
do your best and let God do the rest!

no need to lie to make yourself look better. lies can be a time bomb even if you get the job.
so just be honest. if this job is for you, then you will get it. but if you don't get it, maybe God has prepared something better..

Good luck for anyone who's facing a job interview!

regards,
melia

Since most companies have a website, take 30-60 minutes to learn about the company, taking time to compose questions to ask.

Many interviewers have asked me to ask questions about the company itself; this shows not only your interest in the company, but can provide one with the opportunity to demonstrate what skills you possess to aid the company resolve potential/ongoing issues.
Logic, when applied to people, fails miserably. --Joseph J. Breunig 3rd
