Interviewing Tips

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.  Don’t forget to prepare for the hardest question of all: “Tell me about yourself.” https://www.careeronestop.org/JobSearch/Interview/common-interview-questions.aspx
