Congratulations! Making it to the interview stage of a job or internship search or graduate school application is an accomplishment in itself.
Interviews allow you to learn more about the organization while you share more information about and market yourself in the process.
The Career and Community Engagement Center also provides the following to students to assist them with interviews:
- Practice Interviews: Our staff can help you prepare for an interview by conducting a practice or “mock” interview with you. Practice interviews can take place in three formats: in-person, by phone, or by Google Hangouts/Facebook Messenger. Practice interviews can be scheduled up to 1 business day in advance and we ask that you provide a copy of your resume and the job description at the time of the request.
- Interview Room: If you have a phone or Skype interview, you may request an office space at the Career and Community Engagement Center in which to conduct your interview. This will allow you to conduct your interview in a private location with minimal interruptions.
Every country and culture has an individual approach to interviewing. Additionally, there may be very different laws and cultural practices in interviews, from asking personal questions to body language.To gain country-specific advice, check out GoinGlobal.
