JOBS AND INTERNSHIPS
Preparing for an interview is one of the most crucial aspects of the job search process. Your resume, cover letter, and network connections helped you stand out in a pool of applicants, but now is your chance to wow the employer by showing how well you would fit with the company and your excitement for the opportunity. Being well-prepared for the interview will give you the confidence to impress the employer and succeed in obtaining a job offer.
