Preparing for Your Interview Meeting~
Research the organization/firm...
You need to know if you want to work there. What do they
do? What products or services do they offer? Who are their customers, clients? With
whom do they compete? What makes them stand out from their competition? The more you
know about them, the better you will be able to explain how you can fit into their
organization and help them succeed.
Research the industry...
Know something about the field and what the trends are in the
field. Is this field growing or changing in some way. Who are the major players in
the field? Be fully prepared with questions to ask the interviewer. Remember that
you are trying to decide if you want this position. Be prepared to ask anything
which is not explained during the interview. It is alright to write down your
questions in a small/large portfolio to use during your interview meetings.
Review you most important qualifications. Be prepared to discuss and elaborate about
your educational history, your previous work experience and your strongest skills
