That is why, you have to browse for job interview questions on google, watching youtube for interview techniques, ask your friends or seniors to be your partner in practicing interview prior to your real interview.

  1. Be Your Best-self

During interview, just believe in yourself. Stay focus by listening attentively to the interviewer, smile and speak. Remember, there are no wrong or correct answers, it depends on the way you bring the answer to the interviewer. Address the interview by her or his name, answer your best!
