Have faith in yourself, because if you don't no one else will. A company won't waste their time hiring someone who doesn't even seem to think that he/she is good enough for the position.

Make eye contact with your interviewer(s).

Try to answer all of their questions honestly, and if there is something that you don't know the answer to, then say that. Admit that you have a lot (or a little) to learn, but that you are up to the challenge.

Ask basic questions about pay, benefits, expected dress, hours, what goes on during a typical day. Ask them exactly what they expect of you.

In regards to the why you left you last position, just be honest. If there is something bad that happened in your last job, allude to it, but put a positive spin on it as much as possible. If you lie about it or try to hide it, then you can pretty much guarantee that you've lost that opportunity because they will find out about it when they call your old boss.

I would hesitate to ask too many questions, before the end of the interview, however asking questions really does make you look smarter!

I would suggest asking any questions about the role (if any parts of your day to day responsibilities is unclear).

I would also ask about the company, although you should have had a browse at the website, but if you get smart questions, it's a good idea. Don't ask something too in depth like what the stock is at the moment, that's just too geeky!

Ask about progression opportunities (whilst indicating that you are keen to stay in this role for a few years - employers get scared that you will move in in 6 months, so you need to reassure them).

Ask about the team, the size of your immediate team, and the culture (what type of people you will be working closely with).

Before you start asking any questions though, I would ask them what the priorities are in the right candidate. So if they're ideally looking for someone mature, because their team is older, and you're 19...the probably no the right job for you. They may also give you tips, whilst answering this. Like if they say, we are looking for someone to groom into the more senior role...then you know to act very motivated to progress and dedicated.

Finally - one I find very interesting is...ask them why THEY personally work for the comapny.....sometimes it's clear as water that there's internal issues and you shouldn't accept the role or that they really really love their job!!
