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.

First, I will prepare my ID, CV and references. Then I will check interview types and I will to practice it

Hi I read my cv and what I wrote in the formorning application so that is haw prepare

I don't know, i never do a job interview. Maybe the first thing that i will do is googling it on the internet.

Hello everyone
I research on the internet about the company and the functions of the position and try to ask myself and answer questions that may be asked, such as my qualities and defects.

I prepare for my English language job interview just as I would for any other interview. This may include researching the organisation's history and mission, determining the travel time needed to promptly arrive at my interview location, organising my materials and choosing an outfit.

When I have been invited for a interview about one job, I find out about the company, it's always good to get information about her , we need to know the exactly adrees and how long will take a taxi to arrive from your place until to the company. it's also important to prepare all documents required at least two days before.

First of all, I prepare my CV, references and certificates, prepare my clothes for the interview as the appearance plays a great role as well, collect information about the host company.

When I give other people job in my company, I must to look live is this people because I must look live attitude about this people. I believe if people have good attitude, this people can confidence and loyalty for my company and me.

I don't prepare for a interview because I give some jobs the people. If I will be going other people with my job, I prepare a very presentation. My presentation include a lot of real information and statistic and graphics. So I don't go without prepare.
