Welcome to Module 1, Develop and Refine Your Interviewing Skills. After deciding on a position, updating your materials, and applying for jobs in the first two courses, now it’s time to prepare for interviews. In this module, we will discuss what research and preparation need to happen before an interview, what to do and say during an interview, and what actions need to be taken soon after an interview. We’ll conclude this module with a reflection on past interviews that might have included some sour notes and what can be done differently in the future.
