    The development of strong interviewing skills is critical to long-term goal achievement.  Several factors should be addressed when preparing for a successful interview. In order to stand out from other prospects, the following checklist might be considered:

     check   Have you researched the company to which you are applying?

    check    Have you considered questions that the employer may ask?

    check    Have you prepared concise answers to basic questions?

    check    Have you prepared questions for the employer?

    check    Do you know what is appropriate to wear to the interview?

    These are some of the common considerations. Our advisors will also assist with mock interviews, role play exercises, and many helpful Dos and Don'ts for the interview process.
