Firstly, I renew my CV to be up to date. I check last responsibilities of my position and my finised projects on my CV. I am careful about my suit when I go to the interview. I go to at the office early at least 10 minutes ago. If the interview is second meeting, I can prepare a presentation about me because managers or directors of high level position appreciate visual explanation of CV.

First, When you have an interview job it recomendable to be there 10 minutes before, go dressed to formal way or according at the job, have information of the company, talk of correct way, carry on the requested documentation, that it’s actualized on posible.
Second, it’s needly know that this process often give nerves and anxiety, because we knowing that going to be observed and evaluated, but this is normal.
By last, we have that to know, that sometimes the companys make more that one interview at the same person. Making that it process are longe, often this depend of the company budget, of the company estructure, etc.

Good lucky for all & regards!

Firstly, I prepare myself by knowing about a position that maybe need for answer.

Hello! it is very important to be on time, it´s normal the feeling of nerve, but in the moment when one begin to talk and explain the reasons that why wants the job, this feeling pass and the conversation its is more nice.

One important thing is to find out facts and figures about the company where I'm applying for. For me it's important to be in a good mood at the interview. Doing something nice evening before and a good sleep.

i usaually try to find any information about compony or interviwer. I wear an offical cloths. it's very important to call and inform if i can't be on time.

I had interview years ago. I wear a formal dress and i was ready for interview. I was there on time.

In the last days before the interview I have a look at the website of the Company for knowing the latest news about it; the previous day I choose my outfit and I collect my documents.

If I had a work interview, I attended my appearance and I try to wear formal clothes, I collected all my documents and my CVs. I responded to questions meticulous without any stress. generally I endeavor to fluent in myself and optimist.

If I have a job interview I will prepare all my necessary documents and to dress correctly and to come to the meeting early.
