1. Review the job posting multiple times to understand what the description of the position is.
2. Look up what the business values are. Common values include commitment to safety, the environment, quality, and integrity.
3. Think about what experience you have (from school, internships, co-ops, etc.) that most relates to what the company is looking for in that position.
4. Prepare examples for common questions asked during interviews. While there are dozens of standard experience and behavioral questions for which answers should be prepared, a common theme for answering them is using the STAR method – situation, task, action, result. Showcase how YOU make an impact.
5. Practice your prepared responses out loud. No matter the question, you should have various examples and stories prepared to tell that can fit in with the topic at hand. Thinking about examples in your head is much different than conveying them to someone else aloud. Ask a friend to do a mock interview. Practice, practice, practice.
