Interviewing Resources

Interviewing is a two way process that allows the employer to assess your fit for the position and organization by asking questions about your experiences, qualifications, and career interests, while also allowing you to learn about and assess the organization and specific position to which you are applying.

During the interview process, not only is the employer assessing your fit for the organization, but also Union College’s fit as a target recruiting school. As such, it’s important for you to remember that you represent yourself and Union. Treat every interaction with employers as critically important for both yourself and the College.
