"Prepare well for the interview and be able to effectively and concisely articulate your abilities and interests. Our interviewers work in the areas for which you are applying. We’ll be interested in hearing how you’ve contributed and made impact on school projects and during prior job experience. For example, we’ll be interested in hearing how you’ve led teams, made decisions, developed and applied new ideas and how you’ve worked through challenges. Practice your interview readiness with a professional that can provide you with valuable feedback. When you are well prepared, your nerves will calm down once we get engaged in the interview."
