Here are some tips and tricks on things to do in preparation for an interview:
- Research! On the company, on your interviewer (if you know them beforehand), on the industry, on the practice/department/team that you are interviewing for, etc.
- Review your resume! Even if you have already submitted your resume to the firm, bring an updated version to your interview, just in case they choose to take a copy from you.
- Preempt! Brainstorm questions that you could be asked and prepare answers, so that you are less likely to be caught off guard during the actual interview.
- Practice! Practice interviewing with friends, mock interview services, parents, individuals you know in the industry, etc. The more you practice, the more comfortable you will be going into the interview.
