Job Interview Tomorrow. - November 21st 2009, 02:04 AM

In a desperate need for a job, I filled out twenty of them and dropped five off today. One of them was at Bed, Bath, And Beyond (if you've ever heard of that) and I really didn't anticipate an interview at 7 PM, but they showed me to the office and asked me to wait. I talked to one of the managers about my hours and what would happen if I was hired. I felt a little nervous though and then my phone went off - which was horrible. I should have turned it off.

Anyway, he informed me to show up at 9 tomorrow for a second interview. But, I'm extremely nervous by this.. What typically goes on? Any pointers? Anything to make sure to bring up? I'm fretting over what I should wear because this was the one job I wanted and I know I have to look nice.
Ahhh. I hate jobs.

Hi there,

Here are a few tips and sample questions that I have come up with, from experience.
  • Don't turn up at the interview with an empty stomach.
  • Make sure you know about the company.
  • Re-read your application, as they could ask questions about something you have written.
  • If the interviewer offers a drink, take water. It will help to have some water near you in case your mouth goes dry. Coffee can actually make you more nervous.
  • Before you go into the room, take a deep breath and let it out slowly, really feel your shoulders and body relax as you breathe out. And don't forget to breathe if you start to feel nervous during the interview. It does help.
  • Don't be afraid to apologise for being nervous. Everyone gets nervous, and they'll understand.
Some typical questions might be:
  • Why do you want the job?
  • What makes you the best candidate for the job?
  • Describe a situation where you worked in a team.
  • Do you have any questions that you want to ask us?
Well, I hope that I'm not too late in replying and that this helps you. Good luck!

Ohh I LOVE Bed Bath & Beyond! I buy all of my college dorm room stuff there (and stuff for my room at home too!) Anyway, everything mentioned above is pretty dead on. Try to relax and just be yourself and answer as honestly as you can.

One question you may want to be aware of is what are you not so good at. You need to say something otherwise you will look arrogant, but be careful not to say something that is too central tp the job.

h is a bluebird that you see from afar
it is real and as sure as the first evening star
can't touch it, or buy it, or lock it up tight
but its there just the same
making things turn out right
