It is also you interviewing the company to make sure that it makes a good match that will help you achieve your goals. So, unlike some people might think, interviews are two ways process.
In order to succeed in passing the interview and getting your first graduate job, you have to prepare yourself very well. There are lots of websites and job forums to help you find available job opportunities and you should apply for all jobs that might be your next job. If you received an interview invitation, the real work should start even before attending the interview.

Interview questions will probably have one about the company to check whether you’ve done your homework.
Interview questions will mainly consist of three categories; personal, technical, and personality analysis. Personal questions will be just regular questions about education, family, and city of living or that kind of questions and they are made to check some determinants and to ease the interview as well, they are sort of breaking the ice questions.
Technical questions will be related to technical aspects about the company and they are very important to be sure that you have the starting base to become the newest company member. If the company was asking for accountants for example, then you should expect accounting related questions. You can’t study engineering and apply for such a job of course.
The last type of questions will be personality check questions and they are designed to measure things like your ability for team work, make decisions, and solve problems. All companies want to have personnel with communication skills, sense of humor, and all relevant soft skills.
