How to have a successful interview?

Interview Preparation

Once the resume is created, it is time to focus on interviewing. Many companies use pre-selection to fill their interview schedules. Company recruiters meet students at career fairs, company information sessions, and by reviewing resumes online. Once you are selected for an interview, you have the interview preparation and the actual interview.

  1. Prepare for the interview
