  • What are your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats?
  • What are your interests
  • What are your goals for the future
  • Are those goals realistic
  • What skills do you need to have in order to pursue that career
  • Is there a market or a demand for that career

  • Get information from people who are currently in that career you are thinking of

  • When you are invited for an interview, do research on the company and position you have applied for
    Draft questions that might be asked and answer them in a professional manner
    Also have a few questions you might ask the interviewer
    Arrive on time at the interviewer venue
    Dress professionally, avoid revealing clothes and don’t use too much cologne
