I'm trying to help a friend prepare for an accounting/finance job
interview for large public company.  I'd like as much
information/resources on how to prepare and present one's self during
an interview (beyond the obvious).  What to say, what not to say,
demeanor, dress, etc.  Am familiar with where to get SEC documents
(10K, Proxy, etc.), so no need for any discussion on finding out about
the company.

You don't have to read the entire article on resources you find.  You
can skim it and if it looks like its going to be of help, please post
the links.

Links are preferable to pasting the answers to this question on your
response.  Authoritative sources, preferable to individual opinions.

Thanks very much for your help.

You're very welcome, magnesium  Anything I can do to make a job
seeker's transition easier, I'm down for it.  I sure wish we'd evolve
from that barbaric job interview process but ...  Good luck to your
friend and everyone looking for employment these days.  It's a very
rough and lonely time in a person's life.
