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.

There are some advices on how to prepare for a job interview. First of all, you need to know as much as you can about the company which invited you to the interview. Use the internet and try to find someone you know and who works there. Second, reread your CV again. HR assistant or someone else will ask you about what they will read in it. Be ready to answer. Another tip, try to prepare answers for most typical interview questions. Try to predict what you will be asked. Of course, think in advance about your outfit and how you're going to get to the interview place. And of course no tardiness. Be in place 10-15 minutes earlier.

I've never had a job interview but if I do, I prepare my CV and references. And I also prepare to explain myself. For example, pro and cons. I think I must be able to appeal myself, and in order to get to know myself better, it is important that I first understand myself. Others, do basic things such as preparing my mind, loudness, and answering questions with confidence. I think that it is important for job interviews to check a list of things that I bring and have confidence.
