Can anyone offer advice for job interview?
I have an interview for a clerical assistant at a small primary school. What questions will I be asked? I haven't had an interview for 19 years so any suggestions for answers would be most appreciated! I haven't had an interview for so long because I've been in the same job since I left school! My boss is wanting to reduce my hours.

I don't know what questions can be asked, but in terms of techniques, I would practise your questions in front of a mirror, so you can see how the interviewers see you responding to questions. It's a good way of changing your technique if necessary. All the best with the interview.
