It’s internship season! People all over my campus have been applying and interviewing in hopes of snagging an awesome internship in their field this summer.

A lot of them tell me, “Chris my resume is good but I hate interviewing.”

Internships are hard to snag if interview skills are poor. Most people don’t like interviewing simply because they are not good at it. Because of this fact, I decided to create a fun and captivating YouTube video that intersects Five Interview tips with song lyrics by the singer, Rihanna.

The Five Tips:

1) “Talk that Talk” Research: The importance of researching the company you are applying for.
2) “Do Ya Thang” Confidence: The importance of being relaxed and comfortable while interviewing.
3) Don’t be a “Rude Boy” : The importance of being respectful during an interview.
4) “What’s My Name” Questions: The importance of asking questions insightful questions to your interviewer.
5) “Take A Bow” : The importance of concluding your interview like a rock star.

Enjoy the video and lets get to WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK on your interviewing skills.
