    I just wrote a hub about this.  Preparation is key and you can get free information from Monster.com.  You can also read my hub. http://hubpages.com/hub/Job-Interview-Advise

    If applying to a job advertisement, read the advertisement carefully and prepare your response accordingly.  I get many applications at my work and the first selection criteria I use is to see who has actually read the advert.  I always ask for applicants to include a cover letter that addresses the selection criteria.  If I only receive a resume then it reduces my interest in the application.

    Confidence is basically your key to success. A little attitude that you shiow at the right time too works but showing too much attitude can cause you to loose the job. Dont try to be over confident and know well about the job structure.

    Level of education. Most employers these days want an employee with a BA or higher. If you don't have at least a BA, don't be surprised if you don't get as many interviews as you'd hoped for. If you do get an interview, make sure you wow the potential employer because they've probably got an interview lined up with someone who has a BA (although that doesn't mean they're better than you, the employer will have more initial confidence in the person with the higher degree).
