Interview Training

The Interview is everything, probably there will be multiple interviews. Every interview is a performance, and only way to get ready is to practice. Every situation is unique. Interviews can vary from the most simple screenings to highly sophisticated negotiations.

An interview is really a time to shine. So develop your lines and look and act the part of a real winner. Be sure to have done your homework and know all there is to know about the company, the position, and especially all about the person talking to you. Remember to be friendly, not only to the interviewer, but to all the people you may encounter in the company, including the receptionist. Have all your questions ready, and don't compromise. Learn how to be sure that you discover in an interview whether this is the right job for you.
