Interviewing Tips

You have created your perfect resume, you’ve applied for the job, and now you landed the interview!

 

It’s so important to prepare for your interviews, including learning all you can about the organization you are interviewing with.  Take some time to review the organization’s social media and website before the big day. In addition, practice some interview questions by jotting down a few notes; you can then bring your notes to the interview.

 

Common Interview Questions:

Speaking of questions, we have provided a link to common interview questions.  Don’t forget to prepare for the hardest question of all: “Tell me about yourself.” Prepare for this question by preparing a small elevator speech about yourself and your career experience. https://www.careeronestop.org/JobSearch/Interview/common-interview-questions.aspx
