I Have No interview Because I am Student. Once A time I had interview in school as a primary teacher.
The school principal asked me to bring my CV, And ID.

I have never had an invitation experience for a job interview since I am a student, but, in that case, what I would do would be to bring my CV, my identification and my references (as mentioned in the text), but I would practice with a familiar to be prepared and sure of what I am going to say.

Firstly, I should really know about information of the company which l want to work there.I should know whether the position is suitable with my qualifications or not. I should save and prepare all the documents essential for the interview.I should relax and believe I can do well.

The first thing I would do is look up information on a company and see if I'm interested or not. Then, prepare me with all the requirements that they request. Finally, I must arrive early for the interview and orderly.

How can you prepare for a job interview?
First, creating a script preparing all your experience and why you are the indicated for this job?
Second, being gently with the people.
Finally, Show your documents.

First, I search about the company and the job which I want to go for the interview. then I prepare all of the documents they want. I eat well and I sleep enough before the interview. I do meditation. I wear suitable clothes. Finally, I try to be at the place of the interview 10 minutes early.

I need to know what is the role tha I have been postulated, and I do a research about the company, their politics and principls. I prepare my CV and my speach about my strenght points and how can I apport if I am elected.

Some points to follow for succeed your an opportunity:
Firstly, you must collect information as possible as for about a company policy, product and its size in the market whether inside or outside a country
Secondly, you should make a presentation for your plans and suggestions for what's you offer to the company to bigger it in the market.
Thirdly, you have to a good appearance (eg; shine shoe, nice suit and tie cravat)
Fourthly, it's important to read more about body language is learn you, how is suppose to be in the interview ?

I've never had the chance to experience that, but I think I'd look for information and advice on the Internet, read articles and find out more about other people's experiences. I'd ask people around me, friends and family for advice. And then I'd write a CV that reflects my skills and abilities the best way possible. Afterwards, I'd start preparing for some common and frequent questions that the interviewer might ask. A bit of psychological training is also required for the first few interviews.

I prepare for the job interview by clothing Myanmar dress and setting my CV form. After that tie my hair tidy and prepare to answer the question that I think and reading about the company that I applied for job.
