Tips for On-site Interviews
- You may need to answer the same questions over and over as you will be meeting with a variety of people.
- You will need to answer more specific and in-depth questions. Be prepared to speak about your education, skills, strengths, experience, and career goals.
- You will need to ask more in-depth questions about the company, position and culture of the organization. This is your opportunity to interview the company and determine if it is a fit for you.
- If travel is necessary, be sure to ask how expenses will be handled prior to the interview to avoid any misunderstanding later.
- If you are not sent an agenda for the interview, call the organization and ask for a schedule for the interview including the names and titles of those that will be interviewing you.
- Expect little free time if any. Be prepared for a fast-paced schedule.
- If you will be attending any receptions or meals, brush up on dining etiquette guidelines.
- Do not smoke, even if offered a break.
- Carry all essentials in one briefcase. Bring a professional-looking notepad portfolio to carry extra copies of your resume/documents and for taking notes if needed.
- Be prepared that you may be asked to complete some employment tests during your visit.
