Interviewing

The interview is an opportunity to affirm your skills and experience, tell your story, and determine whether the position is a good fit for you. Our resources can help you understand what your interviewers are looking for so you can prepare and present effectively.

Effective interviewing

To interview effectively, you need to understand what your interviewers are looking for and communicate it clearly. How this is done may be different across different types of positions and different institutions or organizations.
