Practice. Go on lots of interviews, even for jobs you're not really interested in. Join toastmasters and you can learn public speaking (and if you can speak in public, you've got most of your communications problems licked.) When you interview, don't worry about the outcome, just try to enjoy yourself. Relax. And practice some more.

Hi, if you think more formalized experience is in order (beyond toastmasters which is fairly informal), take a public speaking class at a local community college (and perhaps writing class if applicable). You'll get formal guidance on all facets of presentation. As for technical skills, you also can take classes, but have a PC available (either in school labs or at home) so you can practice continuously. You can find tons of information at www.microsoft.com; download papers from their ftp site (ftp.microsoft.com), read forums such as this and implement what you learn. I hope this helps

All joking aside, get a computer. Learn the basics of fdisk(partition setup), formatting, and reinstalling the Operating System. Learn things such as hardware driver setup and configuring the user desktop environment the way you want. Then go about trying just about anything on the computer. Sure you might mess up the OS, but you'll have to learn how to fix. Or better yet, where to get information to fix it. And you'll have the knowledge you need to reformat and reinstall, if you have no other option.

The old saying....'Practice make perfect'. In a two week period last year I sat 17 interviews looking for contract work. The amount of information gained from this is tremendous. Speak to people you know and ask them what they think are your weak points. If you sit interviews and don't get the positions, ask the prospective employer for feedback on the interview and what you could do to improve. Technical: Get a PC and 'play', start with the basics and work up. Build your own PC from bits and then take it apart and then build it.....and on and on. See my point? Repetition is the key.
