Prepare for an Interview

Your professional job interviews can span a range of formats – from 1:1 conversations to day long meetings with potential supervisors and colleagues. The ASCC’s Interviewing Guide help you master both interview formats and questions.

We also encourage you schedule a mock interview with an ASCC career coach and/or attend an interviewing workshop hosted by an employer. Many employers provide interviewing advice on their Careers webpages as well.

Take advantage of the resources available to you to boost your confidence and face your interview feeling prepared.
