There is a site called http://www.gettinghired.com/ and it looks
screen reader friendly I've successfully completed the career
assessment thought you'd all like to bookmark this resource has loads
of info on how to conduct yourself and especially for first time
interviews. They also have training resources as well.

"To me, music that breaks your heart is the music that stays with you
forever. It's one thing to be melancholy and one thing to be sophisticated,
but when you get the two of them together in a way people can relate to,
then I think you're on to something. You want the sophistication to lie in
the purity of the sound, the beauty of the arrangements, and the quality of
the performances."-Trumpeter Chris Botti
