Lol don't be nervous, my last interview was a complete breeze. Just speak up, be honest, and say Yes sir/Ma'm or No sir/ma'm. Also make sure you dress nice, because like my grandma always said "first impressions are everythin."

Good luck!

I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.

Good luck Kim! I havent interviewed in....I don't even remember how long Try to stay calm, wear something that your comfortable in but looks nice and doesn't show sweat. Don't be afraid to SELL yourself. Make sure you let them know what an asset you will be to their company. Make good eye contact is important too.

Good luck, you'll be fine.

What sort of job is it for? Brandon and Vida's advice is good.
I haven't had an interview in about 10yrs, gosh doesn't time fly!

I'm sure you will do well Kim, we have everything crossed for you.

Relax and don't worry. Interviewers know/expect people to be nervous.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Good Luck! Just be your normal charming self! You'll do just fine!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

If you go online you will find a lot of interview questions, good ways of reviewing some of the things you might be asked during your interview.
