employment opportunities. Take the Time to Prepare for the Interview Prepare for the Interview Review website and written materials about the program or organization before the
interview. Be prepared to speak intelligently about the program or organization. Note the names and titles of those with whom you may be interviewing. Prepare for the Interview Prepare questions for the interviewer(s).
However, do not ask questions that have already been answered on the website or in written materials. Be sure you appear interested and curious about the organization and position. Prepare for the Interview Prepare answers for the interviewer(s)
potential questions. Interviewers often ask questions for which you can prepare in advance. For example, prepare to discuss your previous accomplishments, strengths, weaknesses, and any deficiencies. Prepare for the Interview
Be able to tell interviewers about yourself briefly and succinctly. Be able to explain your interest in the position. Be able to briefly describe your future academic and/or career plans. Practice the Interview
Practice the Interview Practice introducing yourself (e.g., handshake). Practice asking thoughtful questions, and practice answering anticipated questions with family and/or friends. Practice your nonverbal behaviors (e.g., eye
contact, facial expressions, tone of voice). Practice the Interview Practice carrying materials (e.g., notebook, resume or cv, and personal items). These items can get in your way when trying to maneuver through new surroundings. You may find that carrying a portfolio that zips
instead of a separate brief case or purse gives you more flexibility. Practice the Interview Ask family members and friends for feedback, and be open to their feedback, both positive and negative. Incorporate the feedback, and practice again.

Before the Interview Confirm your interview time and location prior to the interview. Be sure to make a positive impression by arriving to the correct location on time or early if possible.
Before the Interview However, if you find yourself in an unavoidable situation (e.g., traffic jam, car problems), call and explain the situation. Calling ahead and maintaining communication during unanticipated situations indicates that you are responsible and flexible.
Before the Interview Remember that you are being evaluated by all of the individuals with whom you come into contact by phone, written communication, and in person. Treat all individuals involved in the interview process with respect and kindness.
During the Interview Enter and depart confidently. Do your best to pronounce names correctly. Sit up straight, and maintain eye contact when speaking with others. Keep your hands out of your hair and away from your face.
During the Interview Mind your manners when eating. Avoid alcohol. You should be alert and sharp at all times. Show enthusiasm for the position. TURN OFF YOUR CELL PHONE.
After the Interview Send thank you notes to the individuals who interviewed you, thanking them for their time and consideration of you for the position. Thank you notes may be written on paper or delivered via email. However, be sure they are written using correct grammar, and be sure to use a
professional email address. Behave Intentionally Remember to be honest and be yourself. Be the best version of yourself you can be. For further assistance, contact the
