Topic: Interview

The very first thing to do after a company or recruiter has contacted you to schedule an interview: Congratulate yourself! In a crowded field, you’ve set yourself apart from hundreds of contenders.

Now, get ready for your close up. Interviews can happen in a variety of settings, but the intent is the same: to gauge how you measure up in real time and assess if you can put your mouth where your personal brand is. Preparation is key, from your wardrobe to your body language to the way you ask questions as well as answer them.

An interview is a performance, and it requires the same level of rehearsal. It’s also a great chance to learn about the cast and set at what may be your next role. Remember: You’re auditioning them as well. Use every moment to gain new insights.
