You have submitted your resume and have been contacted by an organization for an interview.
What you do to prepare for an interview is just as important as what you do in the
interview. Below are a few tips:
Prepare for the Interview
Research, research, research! Visit websites and social media pages to learn as much
as possible about the organization for which you are interviewing.
Develop your elevator speech, to answer the question, "tell me about yourself."
Assess your wardrobe: do you have all the essentials for a professional interview?
Have your resume ready to take with you.
Know the place of the interview / directions to the location.
Confirm the time and date of the interview (double check...ALWAYS double check!)
