Job interviews are very important. In an interview, the employer tries to decide if you have the skills and attitude they're looking for, and if you will work well with other employees. It is also a chance for you to find out if the company is a place where you would like to work.
Each interview you go to may be a bit different. For example:
- Some interviews are formal and follow a specific format, while others are more casual and may appear like a conversation
- You may be required to perform a skill or take a test
- You may be interviewed by one person or several people at once
- What you are expected to bring with you (ex. sample of your work)
It is a good idea to practice your interview techniques before you go to an interview. Canadian interview practices and expectations may be different than practices in your country of origin. Employment Ontario Employment Services agencies can provide you with guidance on your job interview skills.
