The secret to artful interviewing

The goal of an interview is to clearly and effectively communicate your fit for a role and within an organization. While this may feel difficult to do there is a simple science to interviewing successfully.  A successful interview begins with preparing adequately and the right way.  If you have an interview coming up or are hoping for one and feel overwhelmed a best practice is to phase your interview preparation in 3 main steps

 

STEP 1: Understand the organization and role you are applying for

STEP 2: Reflect on your fit with the organization. After doing this, sketch responses to common interview questions. The resource attached below will serve as a guide to preparing compelling responses to any experience based interview questions that come up.

STEP 3: Get comfortable sharing your stories and experiences through mock interviews

 

While you prepare, use the Interview checklist on page 10 of the resource attached below to ensure you are taking the right steps not just before, but during and after each interview.
