You've got this! Familiarize yourself with your resume, highlighting your courses, achievements, projects, and experiences. Remember, the more you understand the job requirements and responsibilities, the better you can tailor your answers to showcase your skills and passion for the position.

Don't be afraid if you can't answer a difficult question; attitude is crucial. Show your confidence and willingness to learn, and see every challenge as a learning opportunity.

Prepare for common interview questions by emphasizing what makes you unique and why you're the best candidate for the job. Be concise, clear, and engaging in your answers. It's essential to tailor your experience to the specific role, proving you're not just a great candidate but the right fit for this position.

When discussing challenges and achievements, highlight your problem-solving, teamwork, and leadership skills. Embrace your past successes and demonstrate how they are relevant to the job at hand. Be honest and constructive when discussing your flaws and failures, as employers appreciate a candidate who takes ownership and learns from their experiences.

Keep these tips in mind, and you'll shine in your interview. Remember, you are more than capable of showcasing your talents and landing the job. Good luck!

Keep in mind that the person on the other side of the table is just like you. Be yourself, they know you're nervous. It is not a problem if you stumble. We're all human, and that's just part of it.

Reach out to a mentor (friend, teacher, parent, or family member) for a practice interview. It'll feel awkward, but it gets you ready really quickly.

PwC’s Answer

When interviewing, it is important to remember that they aren't only interviewing you, but you are interviewing them too. You're looking for a place that matches your morals and values. Be sure to ask questions about what you believe in. Also, interviewers are just people, all they want to do is have a good conversation and hire someone who matches the vibes.

You can use LinkedIn as a resource. You can message people to ask them about the interview process and see if they have any tips to share or advice about the company.

Jeff’s Answer

Hi Maryuri,
I see a lot of good advice provided so far. I'll tell you that one of the best pieces of advice I got is to remember that they aren't just interviewing you, you are interviewing them. You should feel free to ask any questions to get answers that will help you make your decision. (Wait to ask about benefits until after you've been selected, but the job description should've already indicated things like salary range, where the job is located and whether or not they'll pay to relocate you.) Be confident in your skills and be transparent about areas where you may be lacking, but let them know that you're willing to learn.
Good luck!
