I have a job interview and I am really nervous. How do I prepare?

This is for when people call the toll-free number to get service (cable or hight speed internet) hooked up and they get a representative at Cox Communications. I have 5 years telephone banking experience where people called toll-free number to get account bal. checks cleared etc. and/or if they needed a bank rep. they got me. I was very good at this job and the last two years in this position I cross sold bank products and was VERY successful at this. I was top seller in small business department 8 out of last 12 months (I took blend of consumer and small business callers). I remember saying I finally found something I was good at and that was SELLING. I really want this job with Cox Communications. Can you help me with this interview?

if you think you're prepared and right for the job then I think you know what to say. Double check records. You may have forgotten things that happened that you dis/liked.

try to think of questions they might ask and have answers prepared for them and once asked a question wait a couple of seconds before responding, like your thinking of the answer right there. Always take the opportunity to give positive examples of how you handled situations in the past if the question warrants it... More
