It’s a good idea to spend some time on a company’s website and understand what type of business they are and the service they provide. Remember, you will only have 10 minutes, so it’s more likely they will want to talk about your skills and experiences.

Another tip is to learn and practice an “elevator pitch”. This is a 60-90 second introduction that explains your background, interests and the reasons you are interested in working for a specific company. Make sure you check out our full worksheet. Practice this multiple times!
