Professional Interviewing

Effective Professional Interviewing

Adobe PDFPrint a handout

An interview is a conversation between you and a prospective employer about your skills and how they meet the organization's needs. It is an invitation extended to you because you made a positive impression via your resume and cover letter.

The employer's goals during the interview are to confirm this positive impression, to develop a better understanding of your ability to contribute to the organization, and to determine "fit."

Your goals during the interview are to help them achieve their goals, to generate a job offer and to collect information that allows you to make an informed decision about whether to accept or decline the job offer.

Our career counselors can meet with you to help you practice effective interviewing skills.

To schedule a "mock interview," stop by Craig-Lee 054 or call 401-456-8031
