Interviews and Offers

The interview is one of the most important steps in the job search process, and it's critical that you know yourself, research the employer, and prepare for and follow-up after the interview.

Each company has its own process for interviewing potential candidates, so be sure to ask the hiring manager about expectations for each interview. The typical interview cycle starts with a phone or pre-screen interview, follows with an in-person interview, and ends with an employment offer. Learn about the different interview formats—in person, on the phone, or digital—and the types of interviews you may participate in—behavioral interviews, case interviews, or technical interviews.
