I actually took a seminar about acing the interview at INROADS and this is what they taught me:

-be professional: wear the right clothing to the interview (don't show a lot of skin, no ripped clothing, etc)
-if you're nervous, don't show it: show confidence and smile - show that you want to be there
-be prepared: they're going to ask you questions about why you want the job, why are you fit for the job, what previous job/volunteer experience - memorize what you put on your resume
-ask questions: Asking questions about the company shows that you're interested in the job
-be honest: that's a given
-practice: If you're nervous about being questioned, it won't hurt to practice. Have a friend pretend to interview you and ask you interview questions.

That's basically the gist of it. If you need any more tips, PM me.


You can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time.

And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do.

Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there.

That's a miracle.

You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.

I agree with what Lily said. But maybe to do more preparation think about the type of questions they might ask you like why you want the job, your strengths and weaknesses and things like what will make you good at the job. It might just help you to think about these. Dress professionally and act confident. You will be fine. Best of luck
