Co-op Interview Skills

Interviewing Skills For Students Enrolled in a Co-op/Internship program

Obtaining an internship/co-op position will give you experience in your field of study as well as a competitive edge in the labor market when applying for positions. Remember, you are always in competition with other Holy Family students - as well as students from other schools - when you apply for an internship/co-op position, so you have to be prepared. Employers want to find the best institutional fit for their company when they interview students to fill their positions. An internship/co-op should always be taken seriously. If you are committed and act in a professional manner while on the job, the benefits of obtaining a full-time position are very possible. However, before you obtain an internship/co-op position from an employer, you have to know the correct way to interview and sell yourself. Knowing key terms such as Ice Breakers and Behavioral Interviewing can make or break you in an interview.
