The Interview

  1. Establish good rapport at the outset and try to maintain it throughout.
    • Greet the interviewer with a firm handshake, a welcoming smile and a warm greeting.
    • Exhibit a friendly, sincere demeanor combined with enthusiasm.
    • Use a conversational tone throughout the interview.
    • Maintain eye contact and good posture.

  2. Carry out your responsibility to establish and maintain a good exchange of information. Interviewers are responsible for the line of questioning and you are responsible for the content of the conversation.
    • Answer truthfully, consistently, and candidly.
    • Respond with an answer that includes all relevant information.
    • Lead the discussion to your points of strength, rather than your weaknesses or limitations.
    • Show a direct relationship between your credentials and the employer's needs.
    • Avoid any conversation that downgrades another employer, a classmate, your school, another school, or any other person or group.

  3. Listen attentively.
    • Pay attention to the questions and give responsive answers in a natural flow of conversation. Although you want to be prepared for all types of questions, don't let your answers sound "canned" or scripted.
