  • Why Research is Important Properly researching a company prior to an interview will help you answer common interview questions such as:  “What do you know about our company?” and  “Why do you want to work here?” Research will help to mentally prepare you for an interview and can help ease nerves
  • Practice Practice what you will say during an interview Rehearse with a friend or family member so that you can identify the weak spots in your interview Watch out for nervous gestures and do not use slang or other inappropriate language Some common interview questions to practice are:  “Where would you like to be in 5 years?”  “Give some examples of work accomplishments.”  “What are your strengths/weaknesses?”
  • Dressing for an Interview Remember that it is always best to be overdressed rather than underdressed If you are unsure of the appropriate attire, you may ask the person who scheduled your interview What to wear:  Conservative suit in a solid colour  Professional top in a solid, coordinating colour  Conservative tie
