    Try and know something about the company.
    Know what is involved in the job as they may ask you about certain situations or something else relating to the actual work.
    Dress smartly, employers always appreciate it if you make an effort.

    Just explain to your apprenticeship (sp?) people that you have decided not to continue because what you're learning is not for you. Thank them for all the help they have given you. There is no reason why they shouldnt give you a reference. If you're interview goes well enough they may not ask for a reference.

    Sure it will be fine, make sure you're doing the right thing though. Good luck.

    well i am definetly doing the right thing i wish that i didn't get the phone
    call so i could just finish my apprentaship even though i knew this is not the work i want to do when i finish (ADMIN) its justs gives me an option.

    if i do get it i was thinking of being honest just telling them that i have been offered a job and it is an Opportunity that I can not reject i mean it was unexpected so i never planed for this to happen.

    the jobs in the bag i mate has told me i mean the manager asked me to bring my passport and bank details with me so i suspose it is a different kind of interview
