Rules for responding:

*Have a clear, concise and succinct answer to the question "Tell me about yourself"! Use it as the hook to take control of the interview.

*Never answer a question until you understand the question-don't guess-ask for clarification as the interviewer will often give you the answer
*Virtually all questions require a two part answer-the first part is the response once you understand the question-the second is tying your answer to how this would help the interviewer's company meet a specific challenge or take advantage of an opportunity
*Do not fear questions concerning perceived liabilities-unless addressed they can become disqualifiers-look upon them as being "buying signs"-preplan your response and have a strategy to address-often the way you address a concern is more important than your response to other questions.

Nothing to worry or get nervous, just be confident and never tell any lie.. answer what you know.. are the first principles while attending an Interview. I had lot of experience in this area, so collected a big list of interview questions and answers sites (more than 220 sites) on wide variety of areas. This doesn't cover just interview questions but also has information related to how to dress, how and what to ask the person who is interviewing you like if it is HR, you might want to know about the work environment, about the overtime rules, about the holiday structure, any medical benefits, insurance coverages etc.,. Thought it will be useful to all, so sharing them at the below link -- might be of some help to you... today and even in future..

CV acts as a first point of contact. After viewing the CV only the recruiter has a some idea or picture about the candidate abilities. If the CV is perfect there are less chances of the recruiter asking many questions. During his personal interview his communication skills are tested. Candidate must always be confident to market him in this competitive market.
