A job interview is a meeting arranged by a potential employer to discuss an applicant’s skills, abilities and work experience as they relate to the job. It is also an opportunity for the job seeker to learn more about the position and whether or not it is suited to their interests and abilities.
Interviews can be done informally (over the phone or in a casual meeting with the employer), or they can be done formally - where you would meet with a panel of 2-5 people and be scored based on your responses to the questions asked.
Preparing for a job interview is one of the most important things you can do! Many people go on the assumption that because they are familiar with the work they do (or have done in the past), that it is enough to get them the job. Given the competitive job market of today, “winging it” is not good enough. Job seekers must make every effort to ensure that they have done all they can to present themselves in the best possible way.
