    But don't overdo in that case. If she gets a feeling of physical inferiority, that will have negative effects on the outcome of the interview. ;)

    ...which could be very positive for the interview outcome.

    I really don't have any suggestions. I only got my job because I told them I was good with knives.

    Take a dump before the interview. It will be one less thing you need to worry about.

    Be honest. Be fun. Be yourself.

    I don't know why people get all nervous and stuff. It's not the end of the world. You just have to be cool and confident with yourself.

    A great line is that you treat the company like it's your own. It's how you were raised and it's how you work.

    If all else fails babe, you can still come live with me.

    1. Tell them all the negative stuff about your previous employers.
    2. Tell them you quit your last job because it was "too stressful."
    3. Tell them you "love being on vacation."
    4. Tell them you "can't get along with people because they are stupid."

    This is pretty spot on. Chances are if they don't like how you came off, you won't like working there either. In the case that you're really desperate for a job, I guess you'll just have to talk out of your ass.

    Then again, I've never had a real job interview, so what do I know.

    Be cheerful, enthusiastic, and answer the interviewer's questions promptly and honestly. How you handle yourself is often more important than actual content during brief interviews.

    ...and don't bring your lunch to the interview. They *really* don't like that :D

    So true. I didn't get a job recently even though I was what the company was looking for. Unofficially, I was turned down because "it looked like I'd found a job elsewhere and wasn't interested". Body language is just as important as what you say. I guess I'll be doing a little practise from now.

    What about people like Stephen Hawking, seems a bit un-thoughtful.

    Being handicapped or a minority always helps, that way they can meet their quotas. Bonus points for being a handicapped minority, especially if you are of an underrepresented gender.

    That's the way the business world works. Stephen Hawking is fortunate that the scientific world is less discriminate.
