A mock interview is the best way to prepare to speak with a potential employer. It is a 30 minute meeting with a Career Consultant via phone or in person with experience in hiring and retaining chemists in the workforce. During this time, you will have time to practice answering difficult questions as well as receive feedback on how you present in interviews. You will also be able to ask your consultant about their background, and how he or she obtained their job.
Email or come prepared with a thank-you note for the interviewer. Take some time to think about what you learned during the interview. Continue to make connections in the field you are interested in and stay in touch with your career consultant for follow up and to keep the communication open.
