I attended an interview a few days ago and it was my first interview, I had done my homework like knowing the company information and their management and so on. During the interview I was so nervous that I can't even speak properly, moreover I can't even related properly from what I had know about the company. Needless to say, I was not selected. I would like to hear from people who experienced this and how they overcome it?? I'm planning to attend a walk in interview that is going to be a few weeks later.

Take a few very deep breaths and clear your mind before you go in and shake their hand with confidence as you look into their eyes and sit down with your back straight and know that you are confident. Jennifer
