The job interview is surely one of the most important stages in a selection process. It is common for many people to live this experience in an agonizing way, so preparing it is essential to face it with a minimum of guarantees (the more "comfortable you feel" the more likely you will have to "get away with it").
You must begin to prepare yourself from the moment you receive the call in which you are informed that you are summoned to an interview. Do not forget to ask what it will consist of (individual interview, panel, group dynamics ...)
