Job interview! Im nervous!!!

I have a job I'm going to apply at on Wednesday, and I'm really nervous! I used to never get like this!! I haven't had a REAL job in about 2 years being pregnant and staying at home with my daughter. right now im working a little part time job, nothing big.
What are some good pointers for the interview itself, and some great points to make on my resume??

Thanks!!

  • Use proper English in your interview, and especially on your resume!!!
    Example: You say... "I have a job I'm going to apply at on Wednesday"
    It would sound better if you were to say " I am going to apply for a job on Wednesday."
    People often misuse prepositions such as "at" and it can make you sound less intelligent then you really are!!

  • Bring several copies of your resume.

    Do research on the company, and be prepared with great questions.

    Check to see if anyone in your Linkedin network is connected to the company, and try to get some "inside scoop"

    After the inteview, immediately send thank you notes (email is fine) to every person you met with. A thank you note should have three parts: thank you, reiterating why you are a great fit for the position and company, and (this is the hard part) something you thought of after you left, that lets them know that you were thinking about the position.

    Feel free to send me a message offlist if you have any questions (I do this for a living)
