Preparing for an interview can be daunting. Even more so if you are a fresh grad going on your first round of professional interviews. Daniel Teng wisely sought the help of the collective knowledge in the Core77 Discussion Forums, where members responded with a wealth of answers and tips.
Jose Jayma recommends to "make sure it flows like a conversation... They brought you in to talk, so talk to them."
Singletrack shared, "I brought a ski boot I did as my final project in school. It was a great tool for using to get the conversation started...Then the design director broke off a buckle and it was really funny. I think I got the internship from just pity for breaking my model."
Iab reminds students, "don't try to make it a formal presentation. It always comes across as forced. I will learn about your presentation skills just by our interaction."
