Prepare – Do your homework: Research the organization, develop questions to ask and review your experiences. Don’t get caught off guard.
Perform – Be your best self in the interview, listen carefully to the questions, answer honestly and share specific examples.
Persuade – “Thank you for your time and consideration.” Demonstrate your interest and follow up with a thank-you card that expresses these sentiments.
