Tip of the Week: Strengthening interview skills
It's important to be prepared at the interview. You will gain confidence by getting as much information as you can about the job and the organization before you go to the interview. Check the company's Web site and learn as much as you can about the business. Behavioral interviewing is one of the most common methods of interviewing, so be prepared to answer the "what would you do in this situation?" kind of questions. You should also be ready to standard questions such as why you left your last position and what your career goals are.
