What is an Interview?

An interview is a screening process in which you have the opportunity to learn more about an organization while, at the same time, the organization has the opportunity to evaluate you as a prospective employee. The interview is an exchange of information between you and the interviewer to determine whether there is a match between your interests and qualifications and their job requirements and needs.

Purpose of the Interview

The interview process typically provides you a face-to-face opportunity to set yourself apart from your competition and secure a job offer.

Interview Preparation

There are three stages of the interview process. The more prepared you are for each stage, the greater your chance for success.

Stage One - Before the Interview
Stage Two - During the Interview
Stage Three - After the Interview
