Preparing for an interview
Always remember that interviews are a two-way process. Interviews enable an employer to learn about you: your personality, social skills, potential and whether you fit their organisation. Interviews also give you a chance to find out more about the organisation and role, and to assess on how this opportunity will help you reach your career goals.
It is unlikely you will get a job without being interviewed formally or informally.
