There are many types of interviews serving diverse purposes.  Knowing what to expect can help you achieve your goals.

1. Informational Interview
The objective of this interview is to ask for advice and learn more about a particular career field, employer or particular job.  Interviewing experts in their field is one more way to become more occupationally literate.  The knowledge that you gain here will make you sharper and more informed.  You will also make a contact and further develop your network.

2. Screening or Telephone Interview
A phone interview is a very cost effective way to screen candidates.  These can last anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.  You should prepare for it like an open book exam.  It is recommended that you have in front of you your resume, the job description, a list of references, some prepared answers to challenging questions and perhaps something about the company.  The vast majority of communication is non-verbal.  Because they can’t see your body language, it is critically important to have positive and polished answers with energetic tone and inflection.  Be sure to ask what the next step is.
