Summer 2019 Recruiting Update: Interview Preparation
While an interview can feel incredibly intimidating, it’s important to remember that interviews are two-sided. The employer has the opportunity to evaluate your technical skills and knowledge, along with your fit within the organization’s culture, your communication skills and professionalism; and you have the chance to get to know prospective future co-workers and determine if the company is aligned with your values, goals, and interests.
Interviewing is a skill, and like most skills, you can improve with practice and preparation. Begin by reviewing the different types of interviews, which vary by industry and company (make sure you are logged into the HUB before accessing the links below):
