Tyese: Research the place you are applying for. You could look at their website
and have a better way to figure out how to prepare for that interview.
Lori: For me, I’ve always encouraged students to practice in front of the mirror or practice the interview on video. You could look back on it to see areas to improve.
Tyese: It is also good to have your resume ready! Have a good transportation plan to ensure you’ll arrive on time.
Gisella: Find out what kind of interview it is going to be. Is it going to be in person? Is it going to be virtual? Due to COVID, everything is virtual. That is something you have to make sure you are prepared: Is your internet stable for the interview? Do you have a clear background?
Is it a good idea to set your interview in the kitchen? Are there family and friends running around in the background causing chaos? It’s best to set up in the right place. You can use a filter as a background, and make sure your audio is off or on mute. Set up everything professionally, so you’d be ready for your interview!
