Interviews are a great thing, right? Well you might not think so when the panic and paralysis sets in.
How do I know what the interviewer will be looking for? What do I need to do to prepare? What type of interview will it be? How should I dress? Am I prepared for all the questions? And, what questions should I ask? How do I make sure to get a second interview? What should I tell them when they ask how much money I am looking for?

Just going to college because your parents did, because your high school counselor says so, or because your family wants you to be the first to graduate with a college degree are not good enough reasons.
Consider your strengths, weaknesses, likes, dislikes, career goals and overall commitment to getting a college education. These, in addition to many other factors, play a significant role in making a solid decision that can chart your course for many years to come in both your profession and your finances.

And don’t leave the fate of your career in the inbox of an intern who’s tasked with sorting through 100’s of resumes just like yours several times a day. He’s probably watching funny cat videos on YouTube in a separate browser window anyway, not even thinking twice about forever deleting job applications that just “don’t feel right.” (another true story)
