I need some advice on this.

I applied for a job a few days ago and have to go for an interview tomorrow. I will probably be working in the LAN appartment of the shop and be working on computers there.

The thing is I dont know what to expect when walking in there. Do any of you have advice on what to do/not to do? What happend to you when you whent for your first interview? Or anything like that.

please dont post things like: omg you *** why ask this on the esf forum, ghey!

Bring hookers to your interview. I'm very sure they'll accept you.

Wear nice clothing i.e: A shirt with a collar, and some kahki's. Nice attire is always a must. Don't have your hair going in every direction. Try to look presentable. Speak properly, no "yah dawg i be knowin' how 2 liek, use werd n ****"
Act like you are really into the job and excited about it, but don't go over the top. Try to find that nice medium.

Come prepared, you know what the job is like, and you know what you might be doing so try to think of questions (s)he might ask ahead of time. They usually ask what previous accomplishments you've done in previous jobs, and stuff like that. If you've neverhad a job before woo hoo for you!

Don't wear any kind of cologne, just use normal soap for the scent. Also, very lightly imitate the gestures they make.

Dont rub a bagel on your private parts and smear it on your boss' face. Thats a definite no-no.

Grats on the job. Welcome to the good life. And by good life, I mean a life having lots of money and no time to enjoy it.

Congratulations, GrimReaper, on your new job. As they say, welcome to the workplace. Well, i'm sure they'd say that if I had a job.

Hey Lee, where's my Dixons application? ;_;

Thanks guys. I never realised how hard "working" really can be. Its beter than sitting around doing nothing though.

btw: The place where I work still have esf 1.0, so I can play esf at work if I really want to (and get fired).
