Everything You Need To Know About Job Interviews*

Job Interview How-Tos and Basics (and Then Some)

Job interviews are the worst. Good thing we've got tons of real talk tips.

Career Contessa has been writing articles about everything career-related for years now so we figured we'd round up some of the best advice on our favorite topics. 'Cause you know, who wants to go wading through the archives?

We're calling it the #CCTMI Series (because the goal here is to give you so much help, you're sick of us) and publishing a new roundup each Friday. Bookmark this page to reference later, and check back next week for a stockpile of our best productivity advice. 

And now: the job interview. 

*And then some. 

BECAUSE IT'S ALWAYS BEST TO START AT THE VERY BEGINNING. 

 

 

YOU'LL NEVER KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE INTERVIEWER WILL ASK—BUT YOU CAN GET PRETTY CLOSE.

 

 

WHY MAKE YOUR OWN WHEN YOU CAN LEARN FROM SOMEONE ELSE'S? 

 

IT'S A WILD, TECH-DRIVEN WORLD OUT THERE. YOU THINK YOU'VE GOT IT IN HAND, AND THEN SOMEONE'S LIKE "LET'S DO THIS BY GOOGLE HANGOUT" AND YOU'RE LIKE "..."

 

YOU'RE NOT DONE YET. IT'S ALL ABOUT THAT FOLLOW THROUGH.

 

JUST BECAUSE SOME ADVICE DOESN'T FIT INTO A CATEGORY DOESN'T MEAN IT ISN'T GOLD.

 

WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT OUR FRIENDS?

 

YOU'LL WANT TO COME BACK TO THIS LATER. 

You never know when your next job interview will be. That's why we made a handy Pinterest-friendly image for you (ahem »»). That way, we're always here when you need us. Add our roundup to your go-to board for future reference or to share it with your job hunting friends.

And don't forget to follow our TMI series using the hashtag #CCTMI. There's more in store so catch ya next week.
