  • Utilize your University’s Career Service resources - Not only are they willing to help you, but it’s one more networking opportunity that you have! They know what recruiters are looking for and can help you polish your resume, work on your personal pitch, and even mock interviews. Let them help you tailor your resume to the position you are interviewing for based on the job listing. This is the best thing I did during my time at Appalachian State University.

  • Do your research! - Research the company that you are interviewing with. Find a few key things that you admire about the company that you could discuss in the interview. It also doesn’t hurt to look at current news and see if there are questions you have about current projects or events happening with that company. Always come with questions ready to ask the interviewer.

  • Practice, practice, practice - Make sure your resume thoroughly and think of some examples that you can speak on for each part of your resume. Rehearse your response to typical behavioral, or technical questions that you anticipate the interviewer having. The more you talk through your responses, the more natural it will sound come time for the interview.
