Interviewing and Networking

Interviewing

Although every phase of the job search is significant, one of the most important parts of the process is the interview. The interview will ultimately determine whether or not you will be offered employment. There are countless occasions where applicants with extremely impressive resumes are rejected in favor of applicants with run-of-the-mill resumes, simply because of their interview performance.

Interview Basics

  • Research the organization
  • Think critically about the skills and experiences you can contribute to the role
  • Practice your interviewing skills during a mock interview with a career coach
  • Dress professionally
  • Bring copies of your resume and a list of professional references

Networking

Networking is a process through which we develop and maintain relationships with professionals in order to solicit information, advice and referrals that will facilitate the job search. It will be one of your most valuable job search tools. Maintain a list of people with whom you are in contact, including peers, relatives, professors, and past employers. This may open up many avenues for information that can lead to job openings.
