Interviewing

The purpose of an interview from an employer’s perspective is to assess your interpersonal skills, attitude, values, intelligence and experience. It is a chance for them to see how you would fit into their organization, and to clarify any information on your resume.

The interview is your opportunity to match your talents and interests to the needs of the employers. Your goal in the interview is not to merely convince the employer that you are the best candidate for the job, but also to evaluate whether this is the right position for you.

Consult the following guides (also available in the JobGrove Resource Library) for more information on how to effectively interview:
