Prepare

There are a lot of elements to consider when preparing for an interview. Are you speaking in a strong and confident voice? How is your posture? Do you know the answers to common interview questions that are bound to be asked? Have you researched this company and industry's history, challenges and vocabulary/jargon so you will present yourself as a polished and prepared candidate?  

We know that these known components, combined with the unknown elements of each individual organization and interviewer's style, can be nerve-racking. The good news is, your Chapman career team is here to help.

Informational Interviews

Informational interviews are not a job interviews. It is about people helping people, and a unique form of networking between two people. An informational interview provides you with insider insight. One person is working in a certain industry or field, and the other person is looking to learn more about the industry, field, career path, or employer.
