I put my completed resume up on Monster.com yesterday morning, and I got a response from a prospective employer last night! Didn’t think it’d be that quick!
He wants to meet for an interview tomorrow. I haven’t been on a job interview in 3 1/2 years, since I began my current job. I’m quite nervous, actually….wish me luck!

Good luck! I’ve been having a lot of them recently and it’s my first time interviewing in 3 years.
Just make sure you are comfortable with what’s on your resume as well as what’s in the job description.
Be comfortable with talking about how what is in your resume plays to what they are looking for in the job description. Focus on some key words they have in the description to use while describing your skills.
Also, make sure you have some questions ready to ask in case you don’t think of any during the interview.

Good luck! Research the company. Many places ask why you want to work for a particular company so you need to show that you know something about them.

Good luck!! I echo everyone’s recommendation to research the company and have questions ready for them, even if they’re generic like how the company culture is, how much growth potential there is in the position, etc. My favorite question I used in my last (and best!?) interview was “Do you have any reservations about my abilities to perform in this job that I can address right now?”

Wow, that’s awesome! Good luck!
I’m also on a job hunt, I just graduated with my Bachelor’s and my part time job isn’t cutting it anymore. I’ve been using Monster and CareerBuilder…no responses yet though. Hopefully soon 🙂

@elysion: I’ve used that too! Although I tailor and only ask that at interviews where I think they might be on the fence – I don’t tend to ask it at ones that are going really well.

Update: Well it seems that the interview wasn’t what I expected… it was an “overview” session of me and about ten other people. Didn’t mention that in the original email I was sent. I headed into the office thinking it was going to be a one on one interview.
The job itself was for selling the company’s insurance to other companies. Would have needed to pass a test for a license to sell, which would have cost $400. There was also no salary to be had, only commission and renewals.
I decided after the overview that I wasn’t interested. The job hunt will continue. 🙂
