Interviewing

Interviewing is a skill that takes thoughtful preparation and lots of practice. Before you set foot in an interview room, you should be knowledgeable about the position, the organization, and the industry and feel confident in your ability to sell yourself to the employer. In addition, it is important to remember that first impressions count. Put your best foot forward by dressing professionally.

For sample interview questions specific to your major, check out our Career Resources by Major.
