- Communication is Crucial!
Communication skills are often cited as one of, if not the most, important skill sets school interviewers and employers are looking for. Set yourself up for success before your interviewer ever even lays eyes on you: Call and/or email the school’s admissions office one or two days in advance of your interview to confirm your appointment time, and to assure them that you WILL be there. (Huge bonus points if you can manage to speak to your interviewer directly over the phone.) And then, take steps to make sure you make good on your word.
