The interview process can be scary if you don’t know what to expect. Being prepared for both the environment and the potential questions will help you get through the interview. Interviews can be multiple rounds, multiple people, multiple environments. Preparing yourself will help with whatever the company’s interview process may be.
You can expect questions regarding your qualifications, career interests, personality, and even personal interests. The interview is not the place to restate your resume.
