Interview Tips: Demonstrating Motivation

Prior to your interview, consider making a list of your qualifications. How do your past experiences demonstrate that you are the right person for the job? What are your strengths and weaknesses? Where do your interests lie? And perhaps more importantly, how did you come to that conclusion? Was it a class that piqued your interest—or maybe a previous internship or experience? Once you've answered these questions, it's vital to create a story from your responses—one that will resonate with your interviewer. Interviewers like to know how you've ended up in their office and why your experiences have made you their ideal candidate.
