How to sell yourself in the interview and ask questions in a short interview?

I have an interview coming up and they told me instead of 30 mins they are really booked up and it will be shortened to 15,20 mins only. How can I really make a good impression on that time instead of the 30 minutes I would've had.

How can I find and communicate with an engineer for an interview for my high school?

I am looking for someone to interview for my high school engineering academy. I’m interested in mechanical, electrical, and engineering physics but I am happy to interview any engineer. The interview would be online and we could discuss the time that works best for you. If anyone could give me advice on a number to call or if someone volunteers it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading my post and have a great day.

How do I fill out a Resume?

In previous answers to my questions and applications I have filled out, they mention a resume. I've never actually filled out a Resume and do not know how to fill one out because I do not think anyone has taught me yet how and where to fill one out.

What do I need to do to keep track of eye contact?

I would focus and be in a quiet place while being with someone I know, my family members, or a friend of mine. Even when I apply a job (part-time or full-time) I need to keep track of eye contact to have an important conversation with the manager at an interview or I won’t get promoted.

Is there any point in getting small qualifications that are unrelated to the job you're applying for and what does that tell the employer?

For example, is there any use to a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification specifically on a resume if you aren't applying for a job teaching English? Does it look any better on paper?

When looking for a job, do your degrees become less relevant the more jobs you do?

Do interviewers still look at degrees after your first few jobs or is work experience valued a lot more?

What do you do if you start to panic during an interview?

Hi, I have an upcoming internship interview for the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab. I'm very excited for this opportunity and the role that I am interviewing for (Robotics Engineer Intern — Maritime Systems), but I am very nervous and scared that I'll mess up the interview. In previous interviews, I noticed two main things that I do wrong: I sounded insecure and I also panicked. As soon as I start panicking, my performance goes from bad to awful. So, what do you do if you start to panic during an interview and how can I sound more confident even though I'm not that confident in myself?

How do you avoid Speaking negatively about yourself in interviews? Directly and indirectls

When it comes to interviews, I have trouble coming up with something good and positive to say about myself. With little experience in interviews, I find that in my practice answers, I subconsciously say something negative about myself, indirectly or directly. Now, I'm being more vigilant in what I say, but do you have any other tips for avoiding negative speech? If so, what are they? How do you boost your self-confidence to a balanced level?

What are the best ways to find someone to interview?

Hello! I’m a high school junior looking for someone to interview for my engineering class. The only requirements are that they are from an engineering or tech heavy background although personally i’m very interested in science or programming related fields so that would be preferable. I would also prefer that they live in/are from/went to School in my state-north carolina, but that’s not a requirement. I tried linked in and googling to find professionals near me but the majority of what came up was add listings. Does anyone have advice on how I can find someone in that field who would be interested in an interview?
