Interview Preparation

You have the skills and credentials but the idea of interviewing for that job can be overwhelming. What types of questions will they ask? Will I remember the “right” things to say? Who should sit down first? Is it okay to ask for a drink of water? These and many other questions will be answered as participants are introduced to various types of Interviews, how to prepare, Mock Interview role playing, presentation skills and networking.
