What's your best piece of advice for someone going to a job interview?

I have a job interview tomorrow and I'm a little nervous. I feel like I know the basics, but I have only had maybe 5 or 6 interviews before and they have all been pretty different and for jobs in retail or food service.

Professional dress, no perfume, light makeup, no jewelry. Speak Clearly and if you don't understand something ask that it be explained. The person conducting the interview is aware you are nervous but is more concerned about your ability to ask for direction and communicate well.

Its normal to be nervous. Just believe in yourself that if that job is meant for you, eventually it will. If its not, its not your fault, your opportunity has not come yet. Do your best, calm yourself, answer clearly and politiely. Remember you are looking for a job and not looking for a career yet.
