Preparing for Your Interview
For some people, even the thought of a job interview can be intimidating. However, with proper preparation, you can become a confident interviewee, an active listener, and someone who asks interesting, appropriate questions. Gain an inside look at the different types of interviews, learn to develop customized interview strategies, and have an opportunity to be video recorded, where you will gain valuable feedback on your live interview. Bring a relevant job description along with an interview scenario, two copies of your résumé, and dress in business attire.
