I have an interview for a graduate android position tomorrow, advice is most welcome

Hello treehouse:

I have a telephone interview tomorrow with an award winning mobile development agency for a graduate position. I want to make a really good impression.

My Java is ok, I can talk about OOP, design patterns all the good stuff... BUT I haven't done much android other than a module at university and the projects on treehouse (all about a year ago)

I'm aware the self destructing message app was released yesterday so I'm going to do that this evening, just to familiarise myself with things.

Most importantly its my first programming related interview ever tomorrow, and doing it over the phone is all the more nerve wracking.

Any advice to calm my nerves or pointers on potential questions will probably help me sleep better tonight!

Cheers guys :)

Just try to be calm, act all casual and answer the questions they will give you in a detailed way. One good idea is to have a lot of information about this company. It makes you look good if you know a lots about them.

They are probly going to ask you some basic questions about you're life and your education. Be honest!

Just have a happy voice and don't act nervous and you will be great mate

Best of luck to you! Go get that android job!
