    Hi there.
    I have an interview for an educational charity on Wednesday.
    I am quite worried about the interview because it's like nothing I've had an interview before. Any general advice for good interview techniques would be great.
    Also this charity has numerous aims, visions, missions and values which all seem different from each other but obviously all revolve around similar issues. How do I go about remembering these as at the moment I can't remember a single 1 incase they come up at interview!
    I have to do a presentation to get schools involved in the charity. I've only done a couple of presentations before (to adults!) and I know it's not my strength. How do you sell an idea well/present well?

    I am really nervous and despearately want this job as it looks great. Any ideas would be great.

    Sorry about the terrible grammar and punctuation.

    Don't be afraid to take some notes or bullet points in with you in a small note-book. They will think that you're very organised and keen not to miss anything of importance.

    I work for a charity and I think you really need to get your head round this so you have some coherent ideas about what the charity's main ethos is. If it's anything like my place they will be understanding of nerves!
