    Just to clarify I’m not applying for any serious office jobs or internships, just some college on-campus part-time jobs to fill my student schedule. I have a feeling I’ve botched some job interviews and had the urge to ask upfront how I performed during. Note that the interviewers are fellow students as well. Would this be a good thing to do? And how should I ask?

    Hey everybody, I just went into Walmart and had two back to back job interviews, They said they liked me and recommended me for the job, but said they had to check on my references and then they would call me in a few days. Do you think they were serious, or just trying to get rid of me? Would they have hired me right there if I got the job? Thanks

    Usually, I know what to wear to a job interview. But tomorrow I’m interviewing at Xsport for the front desk position and as most of you know, the front desk girls there usually dress casually, and considering its a gym, I’m not sure if i should still go “interview formal”. Some advice?

    I have some experience with job interviews, and I’m used to answering most common questions, but I never really know what to ask at the end. It says on Subway’s interview tips sheet that candidates need to ask questions. I have NO idea what to ask (and this is probably why I’ve been unemployed for a long time now) anyone have any suggestions?

    I have a job interview to be a waitress in 2 days and I understand that I need to dress formally for a job interview. However I have nasty scars on my upper legs from my old self harm habits that are not covered by my skirts. I’m sure a future employer does not want to see this on a prospective employee. What can I do?
    Thank you!

    The person in question has been unemployed for several months due to fear of job interviews. They have avoided looking for work for that very reason. They get too nervous at interviews, and therefore perform poorly. Is there a way for a person to find a job without having to interview for one?

    Btw, the person is just looking for regular f/t or p/t work (e.g., work in a store, or a restaurant, etc).

    I need help with getting over my anxiety in situations like job interviews. I only had 4 interviews in the past 5 years of my life and wasn’t qualified either because I have no experience or skills. I failed every one by crying, stuttering, and not knowing what to say if though I prepared or basically skipping the interview. I feel terribly worthless now I’m 25 and never had a job and still have problems with this. Now if a job rings I run outside and hide, or don’t answer the phone at all because I’m so anxious. I seriously hate myself and would rather die now than go to a job interview. I’m freaking terrified. My parents say to just act confident and lie but if I don’t feel confident I don’t go at all. I’m thinking of becoming and alcoholic or smoking to get calm i these situations. I just want a damn job and accomplish something in my worthless life

    I know my question is kind of broad but I have a job interview for a call center and I was told to be ready to answer some questions on how to deal with certain situations when dealing with clients. If anyone has been through this especially blue sheild, I would appreciate some advise and examples of what they ask.

    I am 14 going to my first job interview at a local diner. What should I wear? The waiters wear black pants and white dress shirts if that matters. I don’t know if I should wear that or go more/less. Helpful answers only please.

    I read and hear so much about the emphasis on having a good handshake in job interviews, but I just have trouble believing that it’s as important as people say.

    I understand a bad handshake could ruin an interview if they really mess it up. But other than that, I gotta believe the vast majority of those looking for entry-level positions have a basic idea on how to shake someone’s hand. Thus, I’m pretty sure the employer makes their decisions based on the personality and experience of the interviewee rather than the handshake.

    What are your thoughts? Do you think the importance of the handshake is exaggerated or not?

    I have a job interview coming up for Universal Studios. It’s for the Attractions Attendant position part-time.

    I’ve never worked before and this is the first interview I’ve been called back for. So I have no experience in working or answering interview questions. So does anyone have any idea what I should be expecting on interview day?

    Also, helpful tips would be much appreciated like what to wear (I’m a nineteen year old girl) and what to bring and so on.

    I have trouble with job interviews. When I am asked a question on how to do my job, I know the answer but I guess my nervousness prevents me from answering the question.

    The problem is, I know how to do the job but I either blank out or it just doesn’t come out right. Can anyone help me?

    I already have a full time job, but I’m searching for something better. I’m finding it hard to schedule job interviews since I am working all day. I’ve tried squeezing them in my lunch break, but sometimes the interviews go longer than the 1 hour I have for lunch.
