Preparing for Your Interview

Here are some helpful tips when you’re ready to interview:

  1. Research: Learn more about the company and job, the markets, the products, and industry trends. Also think about the skills and experience you hold, and how you could apply these to the role.

  3. Share what you know: Demonstrate your knowledge of the specific field or industry; this is your time to shine.
  4. Be yourself: Interviews are a two-way street. Interviewers want to get to know ‘you’—your interests and passions—so relax, listen, and share.
  5. Be honest: Speak accurately about your experience and qualifications.
  6. Ask questions: Bring up genuine and relevant questions that demonstrate your understanding, interest and passion.
  7. Next steps: Be sure to ask the interviewer about what’s ahead in the process.
