Pretty please?

I have an interview tomorrow with a study/work-abroad organization that may be able to find me a summer HCI internship in France. Any interview recommendations? Any advice on how not to come across as desperate and clinging pathetically to this one last hope for relevant, credit-worthy summer employment?

i spend at least an hour beforehand imagining how awesome i'd be if i were in the job. and then i try to go into the interview with that mindset -- "jesus, i'd be great."

The problem is: "Jesus, I'd be great at... what the hell kind of internship are you going to find for me, anyway?"

The trick is to sound totally unconcerned and confident. Like you know you're so perfect for the job (whatever it may be) that you don't have to worry at all. Just go in there all like, "Yeah, so...this is me. When do I start?"

Remember that *you're* interviewing *them*, too. Make them want to impress you- they may not be good enough for you, anyway!

I know this may sound obvious. But take a deep breath before you walk in the door (or pick up the phone, if it's that kind of interview). And good luck!!!
