Effective Interviewing: Good Research & Questions-based Communication

Effective communication during interviews is a two-way street: you the job seeker want to know if the position fits you and the employer wants to learn and be persuaded that you match his/her needs.  So, preparation and practice prior to the conversations that lead to a offer are essential and crucial to your success in finding good opportunities.

This section, along with guides in other resource sections, will provide you with ideas and means to help you know what you are seeking, how to learn the employer’s needs, make a decision about whether or not a position fits to continue in the selection process or not, and make a decision about an employer’s offer of work, whether full-time, part-time, temporary or contract.
