Interview Preparation

Interviews can happen just about anywhere. 

Your interview may be held on campus, at the organization, a restaurant or elsewhere. You may meet with one person or with a panel. The key is to ask questions, do your research and understand the possibilities!

Rock Your Research 

  • Research the industry, company, and individual(s) interviewing you to make sure you understand their mission, philosophy, key products, and services. 
  • Know the format: 
    • Phone Screening, Video/Skype, In-person, Lunch/Dinner etc
  • If you haven't already done so, update your LinkedIn and social media accounts and review security settings.
  • If possible, visit the location the day before so you'll know exactly where you're going and where to park. Be sure to print out directions or if using a GPS, verify the location and parking details.

Tip: Not sure where to start? After you have scoured the company website, utilize resources such as LinkedIn, Vault.com, and Glassdoor.com. 

Mock Interviews

Don't wing it! Interviews can be stressful and if you are not prepared, they will know right away. Schedule a mock interview with Career Services to practice and receive immediate feedback and tips for improvement.
