During an interview you must convince an employer that you are the best candidate for the job. It is a two-way dialogue: the interviewer is learning about you, and you are gathering information to help you make an informed career decision. This means researching the employer and thinking of how to present your qualifications in the best light possible.  Make sure you fully understand the potential employer's focus areas and prepare to explain why you want to work specifically for that firm or organization.  Be sure to arrive at your interview with at least 4-6 intelligent questions ready for your interviewer(s).

Preparing for your interview:

Have your materials reviewed by CPD

Schedule a mock interview with a CPD counselor, or participate in an alumni mock interview program. We can help you practice, anticipate questions, and feel confident and prepared!

Draft a thank you email within 24 hours of your interview. Send it to each person with whom you interviewed and personalize each one. Click here for examples.

Contact CPD if you have follow up questions.
