Center for Career and Calling


Preparation is the key to success in interviewing. Before an interview you should be able to clearly articulate your skills, abilities, interests, education, experience, strengths and weaknesses and convey how those attributes will benefit the organization. Take the process very seriously; practice, dress appropriately, know what to bring, and have questions ready to ask. Use the following resources to assist you in the preparation process.
