Interviewing Tips

You have created your perfect resume, you’ve applied for the job, and now you landed the interview! To prepare for it, learn all you can about the hiring organization. Take some time to review the organization’s social media and website before the big day. Write some questions for the interviewer and bring them with you to the interview.

Don't forget to prepare for the hardest question of all: “Tell me about yourself.” Prepare for this question by having a small elevator speech about yourself and your career. It’s a good idea to practice answering questions in front of a mirror to make sure you are comfortable with your facial expressions.  The U.S. Department of Labor has compiled a list of commonly asked interview questions, which can found using this link.  Are you wondering what to ask a potential employer?
