Interviews: Make interviews less scary

Topic introduction

Interviews are a two way process. They are an opportunity for employers to find out more about you, and for you to find out more about them. If you have been invited to an interview then your application has been effective and you now have the chance to talk directly to your prospective employers or their agents. Not all interviews will be successful, but all experience will be useful in helping you prepare for future applications.
