Interview and Presentation Essentials

Congratulations! If you're like most seniors, it took a lot of time and effort - and perhaps dozens of applications - to get this interview. But, the hard work's not over. To nail the interview, you need to prepare carefully.

This page discusses how to prepare for the questions you'll be asked during the interview. Be sure to read our companion pages that discuss the various other aspects of preparing for a job interview, help on preparing questions for you to ask the interviewer, and other topics. See the list in the sidebar.

The key to a successful interview is, as much as you possibly can, leave nothing to chance. If you're not spending at least a couple of hours preparing for an interview, you're probably not preparing enough.

If you live in the DC Metro area, consider attending one of SER's free workshops.
