When applying for a job, especially a job you really want. It‘s not usually to feel nervous and anxious. Sometimes it‘s this anxiety, not our qualifications, that keeps us from obtaining our dream
So you must overcome your nervousness and build up confidence. This often involves two factors: one mental and the other physical. Mentally, it‘s important to prepare yourself for the interview without obsessing over it. Remember, it might be your dream job, but it won‘t be the end of the world if you don‘t get it. Tell yourself that the company would be lucky to get you; and if they choose someone else, it will be their loss. In essence, you need to build your self-confidence. Your ability to answer all questions without hesitation will certainly impress the interviewer.
Now that you are mentally ready for any question that might be thrown your way, it‘s time to work on your physical presentation. No matter what position you are applying for, your physical appearance at the interview will be a big factor in the final determination. It‘s always a good idea to wear a suit; it doesn‘t have to be a designer suit, but something plain and conservative. Do not dress too informally. For example, don‘t wear a red fashionable jacket for your interview. Make sure, too, that it is clean and pressed. This may seem like common sense, but you‘d be surprised how careless some applicants are. While it‘s not necessary to visit the beauty salon before your interview, make
sure that your nail are well-manicured, and your hair is styled carefully and neatly.
The European Film Awards ceremony was held in Pairs in early December, honoring the best in European and world films. Lars von Trier‘s Dancer in the Dark was the overall winner of the evening, receiving awards for the best European film and best actress—Bjork.
.The audiences was disappointed, however, as neither von Trier, Bjork, nor the Oscar-winning Italian director Roberto Benign showed up to accept awards.
Still, other prize winners did come. The Irish actor Richard Harris, who was given an award for lifetime achievement, gave a humorous thank-you speech that was the high point of the evening.
Another internationally known actor, Jean Reno, also gave an enthusiastic thank-you speech. The French actor received an award for European achievement in world cinema, for his
international firm career.
Other VIPs from around Europe also attended. But most of the prizes at the ceremony, which people have been calling ―the European Oscars‖, went to French films.
There was one international film award, which went to a French-Hong Kong co-production, Wong Korowai‘s In the Mood for Love.
