So I recently applied for a job and I heard back from the employer today asking me to come in for an interview! I've done a job interview before, but it wasn't one that I was able to prepare for nor was it in a professional setting. I got the job anyways, but it was for retail.
This job is, in my opinion, much better and more professional than the one I previously had. It's for the Department of Public Safety at my university, with the job title of "Law Enforcement Analyst intern/trainee" and I feel as though this could really start my career. I am majoring in criminology and criminal justice and will be graduating in the Spring, so it fits well.
So for all of you success stories out there, are there any tips you can give on how to do well in a job interview? Thanks!
Here's the job description if that helps:
-Prepare, clean, and code data for crime and problem analysis
-Collect, analyze, and interpret data and information related to criminal activity, public safety, and homeland security

-Assist with a variety of daily, weekly, monthly and annual tactical, operational, and strategic reports
-Conduct a wide variety of open source research and evaluate credibility of information
-May perform other similar or related task as assigned or requested
