Teaching Effective Interviewing Techniques.
Through careful preparation and followup, students can insure successful job interviews. If they evaluate their own skills and expectations and assess employer characteristics before interviews, they can increase their credibility with interviewers and make more effective job decisions. If they anticipate irrelevant or illegal questions on such topics as marriage plans or spouse's employment they can create a more professional image by carrying an extra copy of their resume and supplementing the resume with samples of relevant research or hobbies. Through effective use of nonverbal communication skills they can indicate interest in the interview and confidence in their own ability. Students can leave a favorable impression both by knowing how to bring an interview to a successful conclusion and by following the session with a letter restating their interest. (MM)
