Getting ready of yourself. A job interview is a business meeting, always be neat and wear appropriate clothes that would give a good impression of your prospective employer.

Review your background interests and goals as they relate to the employer’s needs. Questions can be tricky, and can be asked anytime during the interview. Take a look of your academic records regarding your favorite subjects, and why you liked them best as well as extracurricular activities you participated in.

Know the exact nature of the work you did in the past, which elements in your job you liked best and least. Have a ready answer for your reasons for leaving your previous jobs. There can be many questions that can be asked, knowing yourself is the first and foremost important you have with you.
