Career Readiness: Before the Interview

A guide for researching careers, jobs and sources and help with resumes, cover letters and interviewing.

The Four "Knows"

  1. Know Yourself
    Make a personal inventory list. Your strengths and weaknesses. What you want in a job and what you don't want.
  2. Know the employer
    Read any recruiting literature, Annual Reports, and company websites. 
  3. Know the interview procedure
    If you don't know what to expect, you won't be relaxed and natural. 
    Schedule a mock interview with Career Readiness. Prepare yourself using the Common Interview Questions.
  4. Make sure the interviewer knows about you
    Fill out the personal information form and other paperwork completely, neatly, and promptly. They give you and the interviewer the foundation for a mutually productive interview.
