Job interviews are a chance for the employer to learn more about you and for you to learn more about the job and the company or organization. Employers use the interview to determine if you are qualified for their open position and whether you would be a good fit for their organization or unit. You should use the interview to highlight your most relevant skills and experience as well as gather information about the job and the organization, so that you can decide whether or not to accept an offer if one is made.

In the entire interview process you play a major role in keeping the flow of communication interesting. You must make your resume come alive and explain how your experiences relate to the employer’s specific needs. The resources below will help prepare you to do just that.
