I'm a frequent reader of the forums, and an infrequent poster but I have a question and I know someone on here will have the answer.
I got my Masters a couple months ago and I have been applying for positions in SE and mid-Michigan that I am qualified for. I have had a couple interviews in the past month (Department of Transportation and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to name two). One interview went well, the other, wasn't a disaster, but I just never lost my nervousness, and felt that I wasn't able to sell my skills and experience as much as I should of.
I feel like my cover letter and resume are solid, but that there is a lot of room for improvement in my interview skills. I have considered going to Toastmasters (I know this helps with public speaking skills, maybe it translates to interviewing?) and doing some mock interviews with the career center at my university. Did these avenues or others help any of you improve your interviewing skills?
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
