The job interview goes in both directions. The interviewer is looking for the best candidate for the job, and you are looking to learn about the company and whether you actually want to work for them.

If you simply concentrate on your part (learning about the company), I don't think you'll have much time to be nervous. Besides, if the interviewer acts like a jerk and throws a guantlet at you, do you really want to work for/with him/her?

As for the questions, just be totally honest. If you don't know the answer, let the interviewer see the thinking process in order to get to the answer. IMHO, it is more match making than test taking. If it is not a match, it doesn't really matter how much of the subject you know.

I would like to add:

Go in with the attitude that this is not the end of the world. Be positive and honest.

This is more important. Go for interview thinking that if you dont get this job nothing goig to happen. If you go that kind of attitude the technical interview becomes a technical discussion like you do with your friends where you can express your ideas fear freely. If thik its a interview and fear you may not able to answer some known things too.

Be honest and dont lie. If you dont some think accept that. Every person need not to know everything.

ok this may sound wierd.... but the only time i gave an interview i found that it certainly helps

Sit cross-legged during the interview .. this was suggested by a dude who is involved in corporate training,etc.Don't know the reason though.

The old scout motto:- Be Prepared. Be prepared not only for the technical questions but for non-technical questions too

For technical questions, make sure you know what you have on your resume. If you claim that you have worked on certain technology, you should be reasonably able to answer any question on that technology. Be honest. Don't be afraid to say you don't know something. If you are guessing an answer, don't be afraid to say that you are guessing the answer.

Sometimes, interviewers will throw a question at you that they know is slightly out of your expertise. The interviewer is trying to judge your reasoning processes, and they might ask you a question that you will have to think about. If faced with such a question, don't be afraid to say that you don't know for sure, but you think that the correct answer is XXX because of YYY.

For non-technical questions, prepare a list of your accomplishments in your previous job(s). For each accomplishment, write an essay about what the problem was and how you solved the problem. Practice telling that essay to someone you know. Keep practicing mentally and verbally until you are comfortable beating your own drum. When you go for the interview, try to match up the question asked with the accomplishment that addresses that question and repeat the essay just like you practiced
