Before you start the job interview make sure that you do a lot of research on the company’s background before you go to the job interview.

Not to mention the company will appreciate your effort of looking up the company’s background, which also means that you want this job, not just for a random interview.

Before you start to face the interview, make sure that you anticipate some question from the interview, these questions are usually a trick question, and often they are there to test your physiology. Certain questions such as ‘Why do you want to work here’ Might sound simple, but it’s revealing a lot of information or at least the emotional state of yourself.
You’ve probably heard it before, but don’t be nervous when doing the job interview, and most importantly don’t stutter as you try to talk.
