    it would help us if we knew what position you were interviewing for. It might also help if you gave a brief synopsis of the first interview (how many technical questions did you get, and what were they, etc).

    Second interviews are always a good sign, but make sure that you are well prepared (Do more research on the company in question for a start).

    Congrats mate.

    You can't possibly prepare for "anything". As soon as we tell you everything on OUR minds, the interviewer could ask something that none of us had thought of. Or he/she could ask you something waaaaaay out there. Who knows?

    If you're well-qualified for the job, you'll answer the questions well. If not, you won't. It's really as simple as that. Just don't overly worry and stress out about it, or you'll knock yourself out of competition before you even hit the door.

    some good stuff there spilly, had a couple of those atthe interview, was only asked 2 questions,
    1 - user cant login
    2- user cant print
    that was it, she was more interested on how i intergrate into a team and how things are processed.

    there i was thinking the interview was going to be like a MS exam :)

    One that caught me out was from a Finance Drirector who was 2nd interviewing with the IT Manager for my current job and he asked me "what actions/changes have you took/made that has saved or made money at previous organisations that you have worked for?". That one completely took me by surprise but I did manage to answer it by using previous projects that I had worked on but admitted that they may have not saved the organisation money they certainly saved the dept some money. He accepted that and we moved on :p
