Company-Site Interviewing Success

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams,
and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

—Henry David Thoreau

The company-site interview may be scheduled after successfully passing the on-campus screening interview, a phone interview, or it may be the first and subsequent interviews that result from contacting off-campus employers. No matter how you get there, the company-site interview is typically the required final step in the interview process before an eventual job offer. However, you first need to survive the close scrutiny that comes along with it. Instead of meeting with just one person, you may be meeting with three or four. Instead of a simple half hour interview, you may be subjected to a half or full day of interviews. And tests and assessments. But with all the anticipated rewards now dangling within view.

The company-site interview is also your final opportunity to evaluate the company. You will be given the opportunity to see the inside of the company and meet with some of the key people. You will learn more about the company work culture. Possibly some of the people with whom you will be working. And you will gain a better understanding of the true work environment.
