What was it like when you had your first interview? Did you manage to answer them confidently? If so, how? What were the question that were thrown at you? I was asking because I'm trying to find a summer job.

Fake it till you make it! (For the confidence part) What kind of summer jobs are you applying for? I think the questions vary depending on the type of role/responsibilities that come with it.

I see, I'm not really good at it. I stutter a lot especialy when I'm nervous. I wouldn't be picky so anything that is decent job will do.

@chicnthin It's a start! I used to not be able to talk to strangers so I forced myself to pick up a promoter job and waitressing. Helped a lot in my college and career life

@chicnthin I think a good tip would be to not let the interviewer intimidate you :)

When I was much younger interviews made me nervous. pretending to be confident helps. Have a reason ready as to why you would be suitable for a job. Research the company and imagine the interview panel as babies.

I was a teacher, but am retired now. I remember being asked what books and authors I enjoyed and why. Good luck to you.

That's understable. I, too, would probably experience much worser. Thanks!

@chicnthin I was very scared and was not sure if I would do a good job or not. Also there were times that people beat me to the interviews so I lost out on the job.

That is actually what I am afraid of. Scared that I wont be accepted because there is someone out there who is more experienced than me. However, we gotta keep trying and never lose hope.

I don't quite remember as it was so many many years ago. Maybe what you should do is to be straightforward and the first thing to tell the interviewer is - I am sorry, I am a little bit nervous as this is my first time. Maybe then, they will be a bit lenient to you and just answer whatever they ask you
