The clothes you wear to the interview is very important. When you walk in the room, what does everyone notice? The clothes you are wearing.

This is your twenty five second commercial. Get ready to sell yourself! Explain to them why they should choose you. Do you have abilities for the job? Knowledge? Talent? Skill? Tell them about it.

In the end, do not forget that you should follow up with the interview. Send a note or e-mail thanking them for the time and tell them that you would like to know your status on the job. If you do not get a response on this job, then call them on the phone and ask. So, do you have problems with being nervous at an interview?
