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.

How can you prepare for a job interview? By... 1. Knowing everything you can about the company. 2. Reviewing my skills, qualities, weaknesses and my work experience. 3. Preparing arguments to defend my weaknesses. 4. Saving my CV, my ID, an agenda and pen in my bag 5. And finally preparing my clothes (formal clothes and shoes)

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.
