Interviewing is perhaps one of the most nerve-wracking aspects of the job search process. It is natural to feel nervous about the prospect of sitting across from a professional in your field and answering questions about your background, experiences and qualifications. The good news is that interviewing is a skill to be learned, not an innate ability that we are or are not born with. Because interviewing involves learning and applying different techniques and strategies, there is much you can do to prepare for your next interview. The following documents will help you in that process:
