How to Prepare for the Interview

Interviews can feel intimidating. In an interview, you are being asked to tell a collection of stories about times when you have demonstrated the skills required to do the job you are applying for.

If you have been selected for an interview, the chances are, the employer wants to hear more about the experiences you have outlined on your resume. Remember:

  • focus on the needs of the company instead of your own when answering any job interview question.
  • Every one of your answers should be "tailored" to the company you are interviewing with.
  • NEVER say anything negative about your past employers or experiences.  We grow from every experience we have.  No one wants to hire a person that speaks negatively about former employers in an interview setting.  Focus on what you learned from your previous experiences, even if what you learned is that you would like to try something better suited to your expanded skill set.
