This is a rather important interview for me. Does anyone have any tips or tricks they could lend me?

You can always take them off later if it helps your chances.
Perhaps you could be more specific - what type of job are you interviewing for?
-Research the company prior. Interviewers can tell you just applied for the sake of applying. It looks bad when you're asking them "what is it that your company does?" You're supposed to know this.
-Have copies of your resume printed out. Sometimes interviewers don't print them out.
-Dress appropriately; business formal; leave the piercings out. Shave. Comb your hair.
-Make eye contact. Firm handshake when first meeting the interviewer.
-Make sure to have questions for the interviewer related to the job at the end. Shows interest.
Wise words, my friend. Good luck OP.
Wear a nice dress up shirt and tie......
if ur boss compliments you........he just might say...
"haha......promote that man!"
Interview them as much as they interview you. This is a marriage.
Don't pick your nose!
When they ask where do you see yourself in 5 years,
Don't say "doing your wife."
I give you that advice while we wait for more details on the job, and your qualifications.
I'm about to spam the country looking for work, so hopefully I have interview anxiety soon myself.
Just as well, provide a hand shake and thank them for their time when exiting the interview/building. This means more to a lot of interviewers than you'll ever know.
Unless they has Swine Flu, then don't touch the sleezy bastard!
"Where do you see yourself in 5 years?"
"Doing your wife, being your kid's new daddy, running the whole goddamn company and kicking your dog. /evil laugh"
Are you interviewing for a job in hospitality? Why at night?
Research something about the company and know about the company.
Dress up decently . it good to wear formals.
Make an eye contact, be confident about whatever you say.
Have a smile on your face. Dont be tensed.
Actually I did some research on this and was at a conference on interviews on Wednesday, which largely includes night jobs in hospitality. I am assuming we are talking hotel, motel, restaurant, night club, or similar organization where the manager is there at night, correct?
As crazy as this seems, dress as if you are going to an office interview. A three piece suit may be overkill of course, but what I got from the conference was this:
Don't wear a chef's uniform, even if that's the position you are going for
If the people are bartenders or waitresses, don't show up for the interview dressed like them
For first impressions, if you are a guy, cover up neck tats, and remove earrings, piercings, at least for interview
Long sleeve shirt, button down, and tie
Slacks, jacket, black dress shoes and socks
Not too much cologne
Wedding ring if married, ditch all other rings
If you are a woman, don't have a low cut blouse
Wear neutral colors
Keep heels below 4" inches if wearing them
Keep jewelry understated
If this sounds boring, it is. In most cases, regardless of job, you will be able to relax from this ultra conservative attire once you are hired and pick up on the culture of the organization. Anyway, good luck and keep us posted.
