Put all the confident on myself since I Wake up, training possibles answers and practice in the mirror the way I would talk and above all hope that the questions technically be easy.

I decided to change my work, so soon I will renew my CV, and will to prepare for interview. I will do a list with common questions and will answer to this questions. Also before go to interview, I lear more about company and persons which I will have interview with.

I usually prepare my CV for an interview. searching about the company is good idea to show them how much I want to work for the company. I also prepare some answers for interview predicting what they would ask. however in an interview,I get so nervous that I forget the answer.

They used to call us by phone and provide us with time and place of interview

I like to prepare for a job intervie first reading about the company, then checking my CV to review if the information is pertinent for the job

I Have No interview Because I am Student. Once A time I had interview in school as a primary teacher.
The school principal asked me to bring my CV, And ID.

I have never had an invitation experience for a job interview since I am a student, but, in that case, what I would do would be to bring my CV, my identification and my references (as mentioned in the text), but I would practice with a familiar to be prepared and sure of what I am going to say.

Firstly, I should really know about information of the company which l want to work there.I should know whether the position is suitable with my qualifications or not. I should save and prepare all the documents essential for the interview.I should relax and believe I can do well.

The first thing I would do is look up information on a company and see if I'm interested or not. Then, prepare me with all the requirements that they request. Finally, I must arrive early for the interview and orderly.
