Prepare for an Interview

An interview allows the employer to assess your qualifications for the job or internship, your fit with the organization, how well you have considered your reasons for applying, how clearly you express your potential contribution, and your “soft skills” such as communication and professionalism. In essence, the interviewer wants to know: Why should we hire you? Interviews are also an opportunity for YOU to evaluate the organization and whether the opportunity you’ve applied for aligns with your professional interests, skills, values, and goals.
