Preparing for an Interview

It is very important to prepare for an interview, and much of your preparation for one interview will carry over to future interviews.  Each interview is a little different so you will probably never feel completely prepared.  However, it is certain that your skills and interests will be the primary focus of all of your interviews.  The more you know yourself, and prepare to talk about the things that a particular employer is interested in learning about you, the better your interview will go.
