However soon euphoria from this joyful news is replaced by doubts: whether it will turn out to pass it successfully? And, as a result, nervousness appears.
On the one hand, nervousness before interview and in the course of its passing is a normal reaction, the person is exposed to some kind of examination, with another - it is necessary to understand that excessive nervousness can create at the employer incorrect idea of you and by that to interfere with receiving a desirable position.
The main reason for experiences - uncertainty. Perhaps, you feel uncertainty in the knowledge or possess insufficient experience in that sphere in which for a position you apply. Nevertheless if this organization invited you to interview, so the employer nevertheless became interested in your questionnaire or the summary.

Feel with the interviewer as equals : you remember, not only the company in the person of the representative studies you, but also you - the company. Whether really you suit this position? Arranges the schedule of work? Compensation?
Before interview to feel more quietly, it is possible (and it is necessary) to collect data on the organization. Besides, obligatory it will be interesting to employer to hear that you know about firm and why stopped the choice in it.

At itself it is desirable to have copies of all documents necessary at employment, including diplomas.
At the beginning of a meeting surely be presented and take an interest in a name of your interlocutor . Be friendly, at the address to the interviewer you look to it in the face. Attentively hear questions, do not interrupt stop short - even if you misunderstood something, specify after he stops speaking. Tell about yourself : what your purposes in life, education, than you were engaged on the former place of work. But avoid verboseness and try to speak laconically - it will relieve you of obfuscatory and confused speeches.
Think over in advance answers to the main questions which to you can set, and also prepare the. You have to be truthful and objective even if you should give negative information on qualities of the character or habits, but do not go into extremes - excessive frankness can do much harm, and any sounded negative needs to be neutralized or counterbalanced with something positive by all means. Try to keep with advantage , you should not make about yourself impression of the loser or, on the contrary, to behave provocatively.
Try to breathe measuredly and deeply - it also considerably will reduce nervousness. Watch a pose and gestures of your interlocutor: so it will be easier for you to understand how he perceives your words. In conversation place emphasis on the “strong“ parties, knowledge and abilities , but you do not talk without a stop: you remember that the speech with pauses looks more convincingly. Be ready to discuss a compensation question, however you should not do it at the very beginning of a meeting. You remember, to the employer first of all as far as you are interested in the content of work and conditions of its successful performance and if you, without having understood nuances, pass to remuneration discussion at once, then by all means you will lower in the opinion of the interviewer the value as the worker is important. In end of a meeting specify how will report to you about result of interview, and leaving - do not forget about rules of a good form.
And most important … As if paradoxically it sounded to have interview, needs to reduce for itself the importance of its passing . Not to get this job - yet not accident. You treat interview just as to the next stage of the life. Then experiences will considerably be reduced.
