Interviewing

Interviewing is a learned skill and is one of the most important pieces of the job search puzzle. The Center for Professional Development can assist in perfecting your interviewing technique. CPD can do mock interviews, film interested students, and also bring in local attorneys to critique students’ interviewing skills. CPD is laser focused on ensuring that you come across confidently and professionally during the interview. After you successfully land the job, CPD can work with you in the negotiating process.

During an interview, your goal is to convince an employer that you're the best candidate for the job. It is a two-way dialogue: the employer, through the interviewer, is learning about you, and you are gathering information to help you make a more informed career decision. This means researching the employer and by thinking of how to present your qualifications in the best light possible.
