Interview

Interviewing is a skill. Just like with any other skills, practice makes perfect! You need practice and refine interview skills.  If you have been conducting informational interviews often, you already have a head start because you have at least practiced how to present yourself, how to ask engaging questions, and how you. However, interviewing for a job is a little different.  

Be prepared for traditional questions as well as “technical” questions that are more specific to the function.  For example, finance interview questions may be specific to accounting principles.

Don’t forget that the interview process is also your opportunity to evaluate how the company's culture complements your values. Be sure to make the observations and ask the necessary questions to make a good assessment of whether the culture is the right fit for you.
