Interview Preparation

It is only when you have researched the employer and its practice, and identified your own goals, interests, and abilities, that you are fully prepared for the interview.

While a passive interviewee may provide sound responses to interviewers' questions, he or she is foregoing a valuable opportunity to make important points. Taking charge of an interview means being responsive to the interviewer while also making your most important two or three points in every interview, irrespective of the interviewer and the questions asked of you.
