"Always remember that interviewing is a two-way street. As much as the company is trying to learn about you, you are trying to learn about them, and whether the company is the right fit for you. This gives you more control in the process." -Kevin Jankowski, Director of the Career Center at Rhode Island School of Design.
The purpose of a job interview is to determine if you have the personal characteristics and skills to do the job and to see if you are a good fit with the organization's culture and existing employees. Before going to your interview, be sure you have thoroughly read the job description and think about how your existing coursework, personal traits, and experience align with what the employer is seeking. Have examples prepared that demonstrate how you have what it takes to do the job. Get the details on how to knock your job interview out of the park with the infographic below.
