To prepare for a job interview, I firstly study all the history about the company. Secondly, I will learn their work ethic to express how valuable I am to the company. Lastly, I will make some questions to ask upon a job interview. Because I would like to get to know them as many as possible to make sure if the company is perfect fit for my personality.

To prepare for a job interview I have some experiences. First, I would carefully examine the job description again. It helps me to know what they need for that job. And reading the job description gives me some idea about the questions employer may ask throughout the interview. Second, I research information about the company as much as I can like their products or services, their goal in business...I think it helps me make an impression on the employer. Third, I practice some answers to the most common interview questions. Trying to answer a way that is the most intelligent and natural as I could. Finally, when I go to the interview I wear formal clothes. I make sure I bring my CV, references, ID. And I will try to arrive at the meeting location before the time of the appointment.

Second, I need to investigate the company and to gather information as much as I can. Third, I should wear a formal outfit and remind my self to sound confident and well informed in the interview.

I keep in mind to reply simply and summarize the point as much as possible when I'm answering question. This is because I don't feel lazy talking clever. Of course, First impression is crucial,so I prepare best suit and shoes.and I should keep smiling all time in interview.

First of all, the first impression is crucial. Therefore, I take a bath, shave, wear my best suit, wear a tie, paint my shoes. I make sure to take my phone, perfume, cv, money and my identity card. I always arrive to the meeting location before the time of the appointment.
