Interviewing

Few things create stress, anticipation, and fear quite like the prospect of an interview. Take a deep breath, relax, and concentrate on how to sell yourself most effectively.

An interview enables an employer to evaluate a candidate's personality, qualifications, non-verbal communication, punctuality, and general appearance. An interview also enables an employer to ask specific questions and observe a candidate’s responses in a high-stress situation. You not only need to show the employer that you know about the job and the organization, but that you are someone they want to work with and that you will represent the company well.

How to get started:

Yes, you must take the time to prepare in advance for each interview to increase your likelihood of receiving an offer. Practice is key. Find a friend who will provide you with honest feedback or schedule a mock interview with the Career Center.

Don’t forget to send a thank you note after your interview. Read more on following up.
