About Interviewing

Interviewing provides you with an opportunity to match your skills, education and experience to a specific organization and position. Your goal is to demonstrate that you are the best candidate for that position. It is important to remember that interviewing is a two way street. You want to make sure the organization will be a good fit for your personality and professional goals.

What you do to prepare yourself before an interview is just as, if not more, important as the actual interview.

Here are the main steps in preparing for an interview:
1. Know yourself – Past experiences, professional goals, transferable skills, favorite work environment
2. Research the field & organization
3. Practice
