Interview Skills

Are you ready for your interview?

Interviewing for a job can be stressful. There are many questions you will need to answer at an interview, but they mainly fall into three categories:

  • Qualifications: Am I qualified and will I be good at the job?
  • Fit: Will I good for the company?
  • Motivation: Will I be able to preform the job as required? Will I like the job?
