Interview Tips


An interview is your opportunity to display your knowledge, capabilities and skills that are essential to do the job successfully. Although most of us are appropriate for the position, it is common to become nervous and flustered during the interview. Preparation and positive thinking will help you to overcome your nervousness. 


The job coaches at the YMCA Employment Service can help you to practice your interview skills and get feedback so you will be even stronger in your interviews.
