Prepare for the Interview


Do you have an upcoming interview?  The interview is the most important part of the hiring process because it is the time in which to sell your brand (you) to the recruiters.  The more you practice interviewing, the more comforable and prepared you will be and the better you will do. Career Services is here to help you prepare for your interview.  

Interview Styles


Recruiters will use various techniques when interviewing candidates.  There are two common forms of interviewing, traditional and behavioral.  Traditional interviews focus on a candidate's personality traits while behavioral interviewing focuses on past experiences as it relates to the current position.  Today's recruiters have multiple ways to interview candidates, three of the most common methods are phone, in-person, and Skype.  

Mock Interviews


For interview practice, contact Career Services to set up a time for a mock interview or for a general session to discuss interviewing strategies.  You have the option to have your mock interview recorded to assist you in strengthening your interview skills.
