I know this is an instance, but the girl in the interview got excellent performance, It would be awesome if I could to unfolde like this. She has the skills and the preparation for the situation moreover she could to get a perffect speech. That was awesome.

Well, first I look for forward information about the company, what they do? since when are they operative? how many workers they have? , Second I prepare myself talking about me and answer posible question in loud.

First thing I would do is look at the job offer in detail, skills, knowledge and titles that are mandatory for the candidate.
Secondly I would go onto the company’s website to do a search of relevant information about their characteristics, achievements and philosophy.
Finally I would read over and update my CV and Cover letter to be prepared for possible interview questions.

First, I wonder and solve any possible questions to be asked during the interview. I need to get dressed for success. Then, it is necessary to find out about the company I want to apply to. Then, it is a good idea to prepare suitable clothes, and keep the best attitude for the occasion. Finally, I must sleep well to wake up early and arrive on time.

Some people in the world think that to prepare an interview is one of the most important requires to employe but others disagree. In my estimation, preparing for an interview is very helpful to accept in every company.

The first of all, after my graduation from university, I prepared my self for an interview in the water office. This situation gave me stress, so I decided to improve self- confidence. Before the interview, I found many qualifications to improve any aspects of of the most important aspects is that everyone should pay attention to styles. For instance, in my interview in the water office, the interviewer likes my diplomat suit; because he believes that engineers in any condition should keep their styles; additionally, he told me: first of all every man, in construction area, chooses your personality from your style and decides that what kind of meritorious manners is better for you. Thus, I could attract his positive ideas about my style.

The second, I would like to illustrate is that Before the interview I found any questions from youtube such as; What's your idea about the job? , What's your experience? and How many skills in the computer area? etc. So, when I had free time, I only practiced these questions. they were very useful for me because I could answer correctly for the interviewer.

For those aforementioned reasons, If anyone has an important interview, he should prepare himself for any questions and conditions. In my perspective, when everyone has an interview, appreciate any time to win before losing them.
