I have never had a job interview. However, I was interviewed for study. First of all, I must remember to bring my belongings. It is the worst thing to forget belongings. The second is clothes and hairstyle. The contents are also important, but the first impression is determined by the appearance. So I have to care about appearance. Finally, the contents of the interview. The interviewer will see this the most. So you need to practice a lot and be perfect. If I am perfect, I will have confidence. A lot of preparation is required for a job interview. Get ready and work hard on the day.

To begin with, I try to have knowledges about the job. The reason why is that I can not tell my opinion as long as I do not know well about it. I think that it is important to collect a lot of information. Secondly, I try to correct the manner of speaking. I do not think that there are people who have good senses for others who do not speak politely. However some people often tell me that "what you say is bad." So, maybe it is so hard for me to correct it. I believe that original personality would appear in such severe situations. So, the most important thing is to be careful own attitude in daily.

Hello everyone! I have never had the oppotunity to have job interview actually. If I have a chance, I will get certifications related to English in advance. Interviewers always look at our TOEIC scores before hiring us in Japan. Whatever you do, it is better to have certifications. Not to mention, be careful not to do rude for example behavior, dress and grooming. In addition,check for forgotten things and way to destination necessary. First impression is really important. It'll be alright!

First, I prepare my CV, ID, and references for a job interview. Also, I research about the company and the job. Because I think that it is important to know them before I have a job interview. Second, besides this, I practice answering the questions over and over. By doing so, I will be able to answer the questions with assurance in a job interview. Then, I confirm the date, time, the place, and belongings of a job interview in order not to make a mistake. Finally, at a job interview, I will show my experience and qualification and the results of my hard practice.

I haven't had a lot of experiences in this field yet. I have experienced two or three times and I successfully passed just one time. I think it is necessary to know about the job and things that are necessary for that position. I also take with me all documents which are necessary. For example, ID card, CV, references and so on. I think all this things should be ready when we want to go to an interview, but you can usually ask from people who invite you or sometimes they will already ask you those things by invitation emails or phone calls. At about three years ago, I had an interview and they informed me that I should have with me my national identity card or a copy of my job experience. Regards, Tayyebi
