The "Interview Survival Kit" from the Washington Post

Here is a great resource site from the Washington Post called the Interview Survival Kit. I’m linking you to their first article titled “Prepare for Pitfalls: How to get through tough job interviews”. This article gives students (or anyone going through a job search) great advice from a panel of experts the Washington Post gathered. From this page, you are able to navigate to several other article links that I recommend for you to share with your students. There is another article which offers advice such as sample questions to ask at the end of an interview when an interviewer asks “Do you have any questions for me?” so as not to come empty handed.

When I was in college, I loved reading these types of articles to find advice. I liked it when they didn’t sound so serious and business-focused. These are written with students in mind, as I’ve come across other advice articles with the same intent, but would bore me out of my mind.

You’ll also notice that there is a Nail the Interview game link, which I had shared with you in a past
blog. For some reason, this particular link did not work for me. So if you run in to the same issue, click here to view the game from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution website.

I hope you enjoy!
