Video Offers Job Seekers Interview Preparation Tips

A training video for college students, "It's Your Choice: The Interviewee Tape" tells job seekers how to prepare for and what to expect during an interview. In three vignettes, the narrator advises anxious applicants to conduct research on the organization before the interview, and to think about what they can do for the job, not what the job can do for them. The narrator also suggests that applicants concentrate on the job itself, and save questions about salary, benefits, car allowances, etc. for the second interview. The video serves as a companion to "It's Your Choice: Selection Skills for Managers," which teaches managers how to conduct interviews and select candidates.
