    Remember to believe in yourself. Nothing comes across better than an applicant that truly believes he or she can do the job.

    Take each interview as a growth experience. This article may or may not be helpful to you; 15 Reminders of What Not to Do in an Interview. In one of my most unimpressive interviews I held with a hopeful candidate: He came in wearing a t-shirt and jeans and when he sat he immediately slouched back as if he were sitting in a car with the seat pushed way back. Apparently he didn't want the job. :)

    I like it when they ask you..."can you tell me about a time you showed initiative" my response was "no".

    Here's a question I got asked on a form once.
    "Have you ever thought about stealing from your place of employment"
    1. Yes but then I thought better of it because stealing is wrong
    2. Yes.
    3. No because if I got caught I could go to jail.
