In many instances, the approximately thirty minutes spent with an interviewer can significantly affect the entire course of events in the life of college students. In view of the above, the interview becomes a matter of increased importance and high seriousness. There are several responsibilities incumbent upon the individual considering an interview appointment with any agency. One who is sincerely concerned about forming a good initial impression will be interested in ensuring the following: familiarity with the company or agency, promptness in reporting to the interview, proper grooming, and poise. These responsibilities will be discussed in more detail later. Although it is of importance that one interested in securing employment make every effort to present a good impression, it is not necessary that he become so overwhelmed with interview preparation as to cause anxiety, frustration, calculated answers and nervousness. In general, all that is required is for one to learn what is expected of them.
