Polish up your resume. Have a friend download some generic and specific questions for your new job. Have them ask you the questions or better yet have someone you do not know well ask. Get plenty of rest the night before and don't get stressed out, remember they are human too. The day of the interview be very respectful, dress nice, sit up straight and look the person in the eyes and face. If they ask you a question you do not know, don't make up an answer. Tell them you can find out and get back with them. That means have pens and paper, take notes and get phone numbers and email addresses. Be prepared to ask what exactly the job duties are and how much the job pays. If the salary is negotiable or undergraduate, graduate driven by all means negotiate what you will get paid. You hear stories of people who have their masters’ degree making less than say someone with a bachelor because they let the employer negate the salary. The stories are true. Make all that hard work, student loans work for you by speaking up. Also don't sell yourself short, the job posting may have 1 salary but when you go in it pays a lower salary. This is a red flag and this may be a job to pass up.

Research the company you're applying for. You want to walk in ready to talk about who they are, and why you're a good fit there, what you can add to the culture there, how you can help them reach their goal etc. And always be dressed appropriately. You don't want to go in for a janitor position in a suit, nor an office job in scrubs. Even more so, be you. don't say you have skills, or the personality that you don't. It may get you the job if you tell them what you think they want to hear, but long term will make you look bad/you can struggle in the position if you can't deliver. you can word those things as areas you want to grow in and develop, and that XYZ company you believe can help you cultivate those attributes though.
just show your best shots, every job interview considered it as a blessing. Be confident, answer in a natural way for every question he/she throw to you. At the end of your conversation, just give her / him a smile and thank them
I agree with Shearo: Research the company a week or two before you go on the interview. When I interviewed at Nordstroms in Denver I made sure I knew how many stores there we're U.S. wide, where there headquarters were, who the founders were, what apparel do they specialize in, etc. etc.. I studied this material for a whole week so if the interview was stressful I would have this information readily available even if I was nervous. I also, recommend poring over your resume and accomplishments in the event you are asked questions about a job you held 20 years ago because some interviewers want to catch you off guard. Furthermore, go over all the projects that you ever initiated or we're a member of.
be ready to describe yourself, there was a study done where they had two identical twins do the same job interview and one of them listed all of the good things about them first, then listed all the bad things. the other twin listed the bad things about her, then listed all the good things about her. (they both said the same things but just in a different order) and 90% of people chose the twin who listed the positive things first. so your best bet to get the job is to list all of your good qualities first.
Before job interview, understand the industry and search on internet if you get skin specific or job industry specific question set. Keep your CV updated. Wear an official outfit. Put together your past achievements in front of the interviewer in an honest way. Hope that helps!
I had a job interview today and it went very well! Make sure to dress nicely so they take you seriously, research about the company including history, mission statements, and goals. Relax, most interviewers are very nice and understand that the interview process is stressful for you! Good Luck!
At first, go through your resume and prepare yourself for questions asked from it. Detailed interview can include kinds of interview, one of those is stress interview. You can be able to answer general interview questions, but for stress interview questions you need to be very careful.
