Prepare for an Interview

The interview is a conversation with the employer where you have the opportunity to discuss your skills, ac- complishments, and experiences and relate them to the needs of the organization for which you are interview- ing. It is also a chance for you to learn more about the position and organization and consider whether the opportunity will be a good fit for you. If you approach the interview as a two-way street where both you and the employer are learning about each other, you may be less nervous, more prepared, and therefore more confident!
