Interviewing is a crucial part of the co-op experience where you demonstrate why you’re the best candidate. It’s your chance to showcase your worth and learn about the company and position. Remember, you’re also assessing if the company suits your career goals.

Preparation is key. Research the company thoroughly, including their mission, values, locations, and projects. If possible, learn about the interviewers via LinkedIn or the company website. Prepare questions about the company, the position, or the work you’ll be doing, as interviewers often ask if you have any. Dress professionally, bring copies of your resume, and arrive early.
