Preparing to Interview
Interviews feature your personal brand — from appearance to etiquette, from confidence to curiosity about their organization, your brand shows in everything! Take time to prepare and practice with a friend, job coach, or online.
Plan to ask questions — in many interviews, you will be asked — and if you have none, you may be thought of as unprepared or uninterested in the position. Knowing what questions you will be asked is difficult but you can prepare for the common ones. Watch videos below for specific situations. Remember that the interview is a time to see if you 'fit' the company and the position. Recruiters want to know you, your personality, and your interest in the company.
