I prepare for the job interview by clothing Myanmar dress and setting my CV form. After that tie my hair tidy and prepare to answer the question that I think and reading about the company that I applied for job.

Well, I set up my CV, then I write a motivation letter on the laptop if they need it. I wear my formal clothing (e.g suit) and go to a job interview.

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.

First of all, i will print y updated cv then i will review it and expected what kind of questions will they ask me and read about the company and the position what the task i will handle it and wear a nice clothes sleep early eat will and try to reduce stress.

I will wear a nice work dress to make some impressions.

First, I need to review my CV and letter motivation, to see if they include all information and if my work experiences are related to the job position that I have applied for. 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.

To apply for a new job we must be sure from our CV if it’s how they want.
