Preparation is the key to successful interviewing. The interview is a conversation between you and the employer. While the employer is indeed making a judgment as to whether or not you are the right candidate for the job, you are also determining if this is the right job for you.
- The fact that you have been called in for an interview suggests that the potential employer already believes you are qualified for the job.
- The interviewer isn't the only one with an agenda - you have one also. You have a responsibility to convey the contributions you bring to the table and to ask the questions that help you evaluate the fit.
- In general, the better prepared you are for the interview, the more successful you will be in the interview.
