A job interview is your time to shine! It’s a chance for a potential employer to learn more about your skills, your knowledge set, and how you might be able to contribute to their team. They’ll be looking to get a sense of how you approach challenges, how you like to work, what motivates you, and if you’d be a good fit for the particular opening they’re looking to fill. However, a job interview is not just for their benefit. It’s a chance for you to learn more about a company: their values and culture, the specific responsibilities of a position, and what working at that company is really like. We’ve pulled together resources to help you prepare and remember, we offer opportunities to do mock interviews as well. Stop by room 108 to learn more.
