A job interview can be an incredibly stressful experience. However, with the right amount of preparation, research and practice, it can be a great opportunity for you. You should treat an interview as simply an exchange of information between two or more people for the purpose of communicating one's qualifications for a job. Sound too easy? If you take the right steps, it really can be! When you have done some research, be sure to set up a career counseling appointment for a practice interview. Counselors can also help prepare you for answering tough questions in an interview and help coach you on how best to navigate the interview process.
The Center for Career Education has created some tipsheets on interviewing to provide you with some best practices and tips.
