#DebutTalk Live Twitter Chat Recap: Modern Interviews

When you hear the phrase “job interview” it isn’t unusual to feel a sense of dread. Job interviews are not something people usually look forward to. However, it is a crucial part of the job application process, so we at Debut felt it was important to demystify the interview, and see what they’re like today. We hosted a #DebutTalk Twitter Chat (more about that here) titled ‘Modern Interviews’ aiming to answer any and all questions about this topic.

Without further ado, here are some of our favourite responses from the #DebutTalk Modern Interviews Twitter Chat.

Q1: How do you usually prepare for a job interview?
