    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    WOAH! Important position, then? lol that is intimidating.

    Generally, I would say, investigate your employer, their mission or mantra whatever. And anticipate the kind of questions that they might ask you. Like, the normal, "Why do you want to work here?" or "How do you think you can contribute to our (workplace)" and try to figure out your answers beforehand. I am not a good impromptu person, so I try to script everything out.

    Best of luck! Getting an interview is really good! You'll be awesome!

    Do not give one-word sentence. Be punctual. Dress appropriately. Answer with confidence. Apologize if you make a mistake in your initial answer (of course, do not apologize too much).

    When answering a question, don't just focus and give eye contact to the person who asked you, but try to look at all four of them in turn. Pay attention to your body language, sit up straight, talk and allow yourself to breathe between words, don't talk too fast. Of course, do some background research about the company and ask good questions about the company, like details not found on the company website. It shows you have interest in the company.

    Always back up your answer with an example of your experience positively. Of course, don't talk crap of your past employers, they'll wonder what you'd say about them in the future.

    haha, thank you all for the tips!
    but, i think i ****ed up during the interview i'm not TOO bummed because i wasn't *that* enthusiastic about the position.... i work very weird, the more i am passionate about the position, the more comfortable i am with interviewing for it. weird?
    but yes, oh well. waiting on 2 other positions that i should be hearing back soon now, those, i REALLY want! for the time being, gona head out and grab some drinks tonight for the start of a long weekend!

    Not weird, I feel.
    Maybe you were more passionate to **** it up since you had the least interest in the position.
    For positions you had more interest in, you become more ready hence more comfortable.... hmmm, I think
    What can I say? I'm still standing! No weapon against me shall prosper! I am more than a conqueror!!!

    Nice ultraman. 8.8 means 8.8 dollars?

    A question: how to pronounce Danial? Is it the same as Daniel? Thanks.

    Actually, it's KAMEN RIDER. I guess 8.8 is August 8.

    I guess. Never seen that spelling before.
