Hello everyone. I have never had a job interview. so, I am going to talk about my examination interview.I had experienced two times. First time, I was really under tension because I thought that I fail an examination. But I passed it. Second time, I was so relax.It is because teacher in the school calmed me down.Thanks to that I passed the examination.
Now I want to tell the important thing in the examination.It is to relive your tension.For example, Listening to music, taking a deep breath, and more.

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.

First, If I have an interview for a job, I prepare my CV and references. I must not forget those. But for those, I can't have an interview for a job.
Second, I shave my beard and fix my hair and my clothes. It is appearance that other person was got a good Impression, so making one's apperance is very importnat for a job interview.
Third, I practice interviewing for my job. In order to close to reality, I should practice with various people. And, I keep practice until I get better. By doing so, I should be not nervous.

Hello everyone.
I have been interview only once. I talk about then. I had an interview when I was many prepared. Because it must not miss. I practiced an interview many time. I was able to hear a good report. But I think during the interview the most important to relax pf all things.

I think the job of HR managers is very interesting

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
