Interview Preparation

The most disappointing interviews are the ones where candidates do not spend enough time preparing. Preparing for an interview leads to sharing your key strengths with the interviewer that are most relevant to the position, and will help you feel confident and relaxed. We already know you’re great on paper – we read your resume and offered you an interview after all – and the interview is about giving us the opportunity to learn more about you as our potential employee.

Hiring the wrong candidate costs us more money and time in the long run, so we have set up a solid interview process to help us ensure the candidate we pick will be the right fit for the role and the MSU, and will make an immediate, positive impact on the organization. We hope that candidate will be you!

While every company will have different interview techniques, the tips in the below document will give you a firm foundation for interviews.
