Before the Interview

These basics all contribute to a professional demeanor that is fundamental in the interview process.

Being Prepared

Your objective at the interview is to be able to describe your skills as they relate to the position or organization, and to evaluate whether the position is one that you want. In order to do this, you should first ensure that you know the employer, the industry, and yourself. Then you should prepare questions to ask at the interview, answers for questions that you think you will be asked at the interview, and examples (to supplement these answers) that demonstrate your skills and abilities. Finally, you should rehearse in an interview-like situation.
