Interviews

A resume may get you an interview, but a strong interview can get you a job. Use the resources on this page to learn about interview etiquette and how to present yourself as a strong candidate. Make an appointment to do a Mock Interview with Career Services staff to gain feedback on your interviewing skills.

 Saying "Thank You" and Following Up
