You’ve got an interview request! All the hard work you’ve put into researching careers, getting credentials, completing your resume, finding job postings, networking, applying online, following up… has paid off with an interview request. Congratulations! While all the work you’ve done so far has been primarily on your timeline (probably all hours of the day), an interview is an event in time involving others with a beginning and an end. Because of these constraints, it is now essential for you to focus on making that event a success. During the Interview Skills workshop, you will receive information and participate in activities to build your interviewing confidence and success.
Objectives: At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Understand the importance of researching industries, companies, and job descriptions.
- Use the STAR method to answer common interview questions.
- Observe and evaluate interview techniques.
- Recognize appropriate interview follow-up actions.
