A job interview is normally conducted verbally and, contrary to writing your resume, you will not have a lot of time to consider your answers. To succeed, you must not only give the interviewer the types of answers he or she is looking for, you must articulate them in a way that is likely to instill a positive impression of you and the belief that you are qualified for the job. Most people are naturally nervous prior to and during an interview. The job you are interviewing for is important to you, and could potentially affect your financial future. An effective way to combat uncontrolled and destructive nervousness is by being rightly prepared. When you are rightly prepared, you will encounter few surprises and little will throw you off track. Acing a job interview does not require plowing through hundreds of pages of suggestions on the subject or memorizing every conceivable question you might be asked, and every best answer, however. This quick read is a condensed version of the most important points you will ever need to know about the in-person job interview.
