Interview Preparation

What You Will Learn?

An interview is a discussion or conversation between a potential employer and a candidate. It is a selection process designed that helps an employer understand the skills, scrutinize their personality and character traits and check the domain knowledge. In this formal meeting, the employer asks questions. Usually, interviews happen during the last phase of the recruitment process and help companies select a suitable candidate for a job role. During an interview, the interviewer may ask you about their salary expectation, whereas you can ask about the job responsibilities. Another purpose an interview serves is that it helps in authenticating a candidate's application. Employers use this opportunity to investigate a candidate's claim and check whether they can prove their claims.

One-to-one interviews

It is a common type of interview where only one interviewer interviews a candidate. It is a conversational type of interview where the employer drives the agenda initially and a candidate asks questions toward the end. Usually, an employer may ask general, technical, situational and behavioral questions in a one-to-one interview. It is a great interview technique to understand a candidate's experience and domain knowledge.

Video or phone interviews

Such interviews occur on the phone or via video. An employer conducts such interviews when a candidate cannot attend a face-to-face interview. Rather than calling every candidate for an interview, employers usually conduct phone interviews to screen potential candidates. When candidates receive an unexpected call from employers, they give spontaneous answers that help an employer understand the candidate's intelligence and interpersonal skills.

Frequently Asked Question

  • How long do you want to (or can you) study abroad?
    As you can probably imagine, the longer you study abroad, the more you’ll gain in language skills and cultural competency. You’ll build stronger relationships with those you meet and the more empanadas you’ll get to eat! So, you should go for as long as you can. Because empanadas. But, there are also some factors at play that prevent everyone from being able to go abroad for a year.
  • Why do you want to study abroad?
    No, really, why do you want to study abroad versus travel, or intern, or volunteer abroad? You can hang on the Gold Coast anytime, but the opportunity to study abroad may not always be there. Too few students think about this question ahead of time (or at all). What are your goals? Do you hope to learn a language, study your discipline from a new perspective, or meet new people? This may evolve over time. No biggie. But, step one is to actually think about your study abroad goals. And to tell your advisor what they are.
  • What do you want or need to study?
    If you have already met with your academic advisor prior to your study abroad meeting, you win a gold star. And a cookie. This inquiry will probably end up being the first of the study abroad questions you are asked, as your eligibility for earning credits (if this is your goal) will vary widely based on location, length, and focus of your program. Many schools match students and advisors based on subject rather than location, so you might need to zero-in on your program focus prior to scheduling your interview (and subsequent prepping for study abroad interview questions).
