Interview Essentials

The interview is the most important element in the job search process.  When an employer invites you to an interview, he or she generally already thinks you may be qualified to do the job.  Now you both need to exchange enough information to allow you both to determine whether you and the organization are a good "fit" for each other.  Therefore, think of an interview as a highly focused professional conversation.  Use the limited amount of time you have to learn about the employer's needs and discuss the ways you can contribute to meeting them.
