Why it Matters
Most students do not have experience interviewing under pressure. Opportunities are often decided based on interviews, so you must have practiced, confident, researched answers – and questions for the interviewer.
- Create a list of five important experiences highlighting skills and experience desired by an organization using the STAR method; Practice talking about these experiences in front of a mirror or by recording and watching on your phone or computer.
- Identify skills for the role you seek (based on the job description) and refine stories based on your skills and experiences.
- Practice interviewing with a professional, coach, or InterviewStream, an online mock interview practice tool found here.
