Interview tips

Communication is a two-way process for reaching mutual understanding through verbal, non-verbal, and written messages. Most job applications require personal interviews with applicants to assess qualities such as self-confidence, interpersonal skills and ability to overcome challenges. This is your time to shine — and to ask questions about the future personal development.

The Interview

Every application’s interview process is unique. Talk to your interview advisor or contact the company directly to find out about the interview process. Click to to the button below to get a valuable inspiration.

How to Prepare

Know yourself. Explain your unique qualities that make you a good leader. Share your interests, including volunteer experiences or activities that have made you a well-rounded person. Balance honesty with being humble. Remember to mention the mentors who helped you along your way (and share what they taught you). It is likely that the interviewer will ask questions based on your submitted materials, so review them beforehand.

Know the interview type. Contact the school and ask what format the interviews are and prepare for that type. If you prepare for the right type of interview, you will be at an advantage. Mixed multiple interview (MMI), group or one-on-one interviews will require different preparation. Make sure to do a mock interview that matches the type of interview you’re going on

At this time, refer to the Interview Style Scoring Guide on the questionnaire to identify your communication style. Calculate your scores and keep them available for review as you read through the remainder of this project. Most people will find they produce a score in multiple categories. Each communication style has value and there is no best overall style. Having a higher score in one communication style indicates you are comfortable using that style in many situations, but is not necessarily what you choose in all communication. The goal of understanding your communication style preferences is to communicate with others in a way that is comfortable and effective. 

Direct: This style is decisive, competitive, independent, and confident. Because the person with a Direct communication style is focused, results-oriented, ambitious, goal-oriented, and driven, others may perceive her as strong-willed or demanding. She can be seen as impatient when bored. She likes to feel in control and may become frustrated if dependent on others. She measures progress by achievements and successes and is motivated by challenges. At work she displays more concern for results than relationships and does not easily share feelings. Her pace is fast and decisive and she likes a busy, efficient, structured, and formal environment. 

Initiating: This style is sociable, enthusiastic, energetic, spontaneous, and fun-loving. Due to the gregarious nature of the person with an Initiating communication style, he may be perceived as someone who talks more than listens. He is often perceived as selfassured, innovative, and persuasive. He likes to feel accepted and is motivated by relationships. He responds strongly to praise and approval. His pace is fast and he may appear impulsive at times. He prefers a stimulating, personal, and friendly work environment. 

Supportive: This style is calm, steady, approachable, sincere, and gentle. Because the person with a Supportive communication style dislikes change, she may appear indecisive. More often she is perceived as careful, patient, and amiable. Due to her active listening skills, others see her as cooperative, dependable, and loyal. She is often modest and prefers praise be given privately. Patient and slow-paced, she likes a personal, relaxed, no-tension environment. She puts high priority on close relationships and does not like conflict, but may mediate if necessary.

 Analytical This style is precise, exact, analytical, and logical. Because the person with an Analytical communication style is systematic and task-oriented, he is sometimes perceived as a perfectionist. He is organized, self-reliant, purposeful, and diplomatic. He is motivated by certainty and will rarely give an opinion unless asked. He is slow and cautious in his pace and likes a structured, ordered, and functional environment. Because he needs to feel sure of his position and others’ expectations, he is often private with personal information and does not easily express emotions.
