I remember last week that it was a very nervous day for me, because it was the time for me to answers though questions from the interviewer of the company. Actually, It was not the first time of my job interview experience. But, I really nervous, because the interviewer was very assertive. That time was not as usual the way I am answering job interview questions. Do you nervous in a job interview?

I get nervous during an interview. And I feel I would be stuttering the whole time. But once I get to feel the kind of person that is in front of me, I am able to express my self better.

I think you are conditional in this case. You are nervous or not is depending on the interviewer. But, you are good if the interviewer is a kind person. Thanks for a good response.

I have not been on an interview in a while. I plan to get a job and that day will be so stressful for me. the first thing they are going to ask is why I was not working for so long. when I answer I might never get a job. I don't want to lie or anything but it might come to it to get a job. but,then I could be fired if they found out later on.

Yes, sometimes our experience is not supporting us in getting a new job. I think to keep it secret is a good way to maintain our reputation in a company. But, I don't think that they will fire you if you are a really good worker and have great contribution for the company.

Not really. Since interviews are scheduled, I have time to prepare for it. I make some research on the company's background, I make sure I have all my paper in order and I just present myself without any pretentions and just be myself. I don't look to eager to impress because they can pick out if you're being too pleasant to the point of sounding phony.

Yes, I like your opinion. We have to prepare our answers before we entering the job interview. But in case that the interviewer is too assertive, I think you would be nervous. The problem was not in answering the question. Thanks a lot for a good respond.

Yes, of course. I remember during my first interview for a Spanish customer service agent I got really nervous. It didn't help that the aircon made the room and me colder. But I got through it and passed.

Very nice. You have a good job interview experience. It was lucky that you were not freeze (kidding). Thanks for your response.
