@krayzay87:  Just know that nearly everyone is nervous for an interview. Listen to what the interviewer is saying rather than being in your own mind, thinking of what to say next. Practice responses to the typical questions (Why do you want this job? What are your strengths and weaknesses?  Etc.) Make sure you know some basic things about their business. Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

@always:  great advice! Sometimes I catch myself focusing so much on what I’m going to say that I miss something they say!

I’m sending good thoughts your way! Good luck!

Girl, I think most bosses, when interviewing, know that people are nervous… my voice gets shaky! My (now) boss used it against me and started picking on me, which then showed his sense of humor and personality, and it calmed me down a bit because he was “high up” in rank at my job. Just remember, they are just people too! No better than you, so dont get intimidated! Just go in there with an open mind, and be yourself!! FINGERS CROSSED!

@MrsBeck:  Thanks  Laughing

Another thing, read their job posting.  They’ll say what they want in the job listing. Make sure you say you have specific qualities they list in the job listing (like, “Working independently is a strength of mine”, etc.)

Good luck!! I had a job interview yesterday for a “desk job” and I’ve never had one and I was EXTREMELY nervous. They even brought up the fact that I had no experience so I probably won’t get the job lol. At least It was good experience!
