Interview Preparation and Mock Interviews

What is an interview?

The interview is the last step of the hiring process and the most important.  It offers both you and the employer the opportunity to meet one another, exchange information and come to tentative conclusions about "hiring" one another. The interview is a two-way process.  You evaluate the employer while he/she evaluates you.
