Frequently Asked Questions

Interview Tips

During interviews or phone screens, you’ll be asked behavioral questions with lead-ins similar to “tell me about a time when...” This allows the interviewer to learn about your thought process, how you approach a situation and how you then handle yourself.
​​​​​​​


              Situation: Briefly describe the situation at-hand
 
              Task: Elaborate on the tasks you were required to complete during this situation.

              Actions: List the actions you felt were necessary to take.

              Result: For better or worse, what was the result of your actions.


Anticipating the kinds of behavioral questions the interviewer will ask and applying the STAR method to your answers will enhance your interview responses. Additionally, be prepared to provide details of your background and resume and concisely address them.


Research our organization:                                                                                                                                                                                             
Having a general understanding about our Mission, Vision and Values enables you to tailor your answers accordingly.



First impressions matter:                                                                                                                                                                                              
Make sure to dress appropriately for the interview. When in doubt, ask your recruiter what’s appropriate.



Arrive early:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Allow yourself extra time to navigate traffic, find parking and entrances and check in. A good rule of thumb is to plan on arriving 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time.



Remember your manners:
Interviewers notice a firm hand shake, direct eye contact, good posture, and an engaging tone and enthusiastic attitude.



Ask questions:
Always be prepared to ask the interviewer questions. This is your opportunity to hear their honest responses about the company’s culture and vision for your role.
