  1. I always dress in either a black skirt suit or a pant suit

  2. Make sure your breath smells good and you don't have food stuck in your teeth!:)(

  3. I always ask lots of questions. I tend to ask how they got into that position. Or how they moved up the corporate ladder. Just to make them feel like you are looking for a long term job. That's always worked for me. I'm an account so I always dress business casual. My hair always looks nice :)

  4. Let's see if this one shows! Lol
    I think most people are nervous at interviews! Just be yourself! As far as clothes, it depends on what type if job it is but you can't go wrong with a pair of black or kaki slacks and a button up shirt!

  5. Go in with confidence, even if you don't feel confident, and answer every question with a well thought out answer. Employers love people who are confident and can think on their feet! -meredith

  6. Look gorgeous and put on your best smile :) They know when your confident and nervous. Just drink a big cup of coffee before an interview! Maybe buy your favorite lipstick the night before, makeup always makes me happy! Good luck

  7. Try not to fidget too much with your hands or legs (I know I have to constantly remind myself of this because I get so nervous)...I always tend to play with my hair when I'm nervous as well! You will do great, and you will be a a super addition to any company!!! Good luck! Keep us posted!! Xo

  8. Go in prepared with a little knowledge about the company and then ask questions! Most of all, just be yourself. Best of luck to you! I start a new job tomorrow and am nervous too :)

  9. Remind yourself the interviewer is just a person and not the gatekeeper to your finances :) Speak to them as if you were out to lunch with friends :)

  10. One of the questions interviewers ask is "what is your worst fault? or what are you weakest at?" So you need to thinbk of something that you are weak at that is really a good thinbg for the company. For example - you tend to stay on a problem till you finish or get it right - even if it takes extra time. or You are always on time or you are one that tries to get things correct or figure out how to get it done correctly.
