Are You Ready For Your Job or Internship Interview?

It’s that time of year! As you start the process for interviewing for internships and jobs here are some helpful interviewing tips!  Many companies start the interview process with a phone call to discuss the job opportunity with a prospective employee, determine if the candidate is a good fit, and to gauge his or her interest in the position. Yes, you should spend more time preparing for an in-person interview, but many companies treat phone screens as the official first round of the hiring process. That means candidates are expected to go into them prepared with as much information about the company, position, and their own skills and strengths as possible.Follow these dos and don’ts and you’ll ace your next phone interview!
