Ok so I have an interview with BHS on friday, i'm very nervous and having nothing to wear!
What can I wear? Bearing in mind I dont do dresses or skirts! And i'm not very girly!
And also any tips, I've never had an interview before? Any advice or help would be much appreciated!!

Becky, you really don't have to wear dresses or anything like that anymore to go to an interview.
Don't you have a lovely, well dressed trousers?
The main thing at a interview is to be yourself and to lie a bit. You always have to pretend that you can do everything they ask for. Note that you can only say that if you at least know a bit about it.
For what kind of job is it?

Working in a department store (BHS) I think it's sales assistant, they didnt actually say, they just called me up today and asked me to go in for an interview on Friday, I handed my CV in a couple of weeks back. I think im going to wear some smart Black trousers and a light coloured fitted shirt. Nervous though! lol

It is normal to be nervous, specially when it is your first interview.
Just try to be interested in the job. Ask some questions about the company (how many people they have working there etc.). That always gives a good impression.
Perhaps you can already look something on the internet about the company and ask a question about that.
You'll do just fine, you see. Try to hide you nervousity and smile. Talk clearly and response just to there questions.
I'll keep my fingers crossed, that is for sure. :thumbs:

Toys R Us rocks, you can play with the toys and remember all the toys you didn't get for Christmas/birthdays etc you can convince parents to buy them saying how disappointed they kids will be if they don't, guilt trip them, it could be fun from your point of view

Wear something smart and comfortable, an outfit which makes you relax should raise your confidence in the interview. Know some general facts about the company and just tell them what qualities you have, let them know what you can contribute to a successful working environment.

Good luck with your interview. Whether it's successful or not, remember the experience for any future interviews. Let us know how you got on.
