The MUST Do 60-Minute Job Interview Preparation Exercise!

Relying on luck is never worth it. Not only will your interviewer see right through it, but your answers (and your self-confidence) will seriously suffer if you neglect to properly prepare. You should dedicate at least an hour to your preparation.

5 minutes

Re-reading and analyzing the job description, focusing on the essential requirements and responsibilities, in order to tailor your answers and to home in on the most important aspects of the job.

5 minutes

Re-reading your resume and cover letter to review how you pitched yourself in the first place.

15 minutes

Researching potential interview questions specific to the position and the industry.


Job interviews can be nerve wrecking. You don’t know who you are going to meet and what questions are going to be asked. Plus you only get ONE chance.

20 minutes

Practicing answers to these questions and recalling specific examples from your work experience, such as major accomplishments, challenges, or milestones that will serve as anecdotes to strengthen your responses to situational and behavioral-based interview questions.

15 minutes

Researching the company, looking into their history, mission and values, and recent projects.
