I have been lucky enough to have been shortlisted for a job interview. It is as a library assistant (except they call it "Resource Delivery Information Assistant") at the Royal College of Nursing. I have found that I am good enough on paper and get some interviews, but I usually fluff them up and do not get offered jobs. I try my best and read stuff on the company's website and try to memorise it, but then when I turn up it all goes out of my head and my mind is blank and I might as well not have bothered. I also hate that they ask such open questions that are virtually impossible for me to answer, when they only want to tick off a list of things. It seems to me that it would help both the interviewer and the interviewee if they just asked simple questions like have you done this skill before? what is your experience of this specific task? etc, instead of things like tell me about yourself? Does anyone else find these problems? Do you have any tips?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
