An interview is a conversation – an exchange of information. A company wants to learn about you, and you want to learn about the company. So why do some people get all worked up about an upcoming interview? Could fear of the unknown be the trigger that increases your anxiety level? One thing is for sure: No one likes surprises, especially when interviews are concerned.

However, there are steps you can take to prevent some scenarios from catching you off guard.

First, when the interview is scheduled, make sure you find out what the format of the interview will be, how long you should allot for the meeting, who will be attending and if there is anything you should prepare for or know about before you arrive.
