Intern Advice:

Interview for Success

Who better to provide interview tips for interns than individuals who have employed specific strategies to earn an internship with Frontier? We spoke to several interns who kindly explained what to do before, during, and after your interview.

  • Before the interview
    • Research the company. Explore their website and LinkedIn page to understand what the company is accomplishing and how you can contribute.
    • Research the interviewer. Do you know who will be conducting the interview? Look them up on LinkedIn to learn more about their background.
    • Decide what you want out of the internship. Write down the top three things you want to gain from your experience, and the top three areas where you want to make an impact.
    • Use the STAR method. Review commonly asked interview questions and write your responses using the situation-task-action-result (STAR) method.
    • Analyze the job description. Develop examples of how your experience relates to each bullet point using the STAR method. If you don’t have direct experience, develop a response for how you would approach the task.
    • List your accomplishments. Be sure to quantify your accomplishments with concrete details: “I led my student group through the activation of a university-wide volunteering event, donating 250 pounds of food to the underserved.”
    • Practice your interview with someone else or record yourself and watch the playback to see how you come across.
    • Dress for success. Select attire that matches the dress code provided by the employer.
    • Learn about the different types of interview questions.
      • Behavior interview questions contain a hypothetical scenario from the interviewer for you to answer. Study the most impactful experiences of your career to answer behavioral interview questions effectively.
      • Situational interview questions focus on how you’ll handle real-life scenarios in the workplace and how you’ve handled similar situations in previous roles.
    • Prepare a virtual or physical portfolio of your work to show your employer, mainly if you apply for a technical or creative internship. Explain what you learned from classroom assignments, volunteer opportunities, and other assignments.
  • During the interview
    • Arrive early. Whether your interview is virtual or in-person, this will help you feel more relaxed. Account for driving time and parking if your interview is in-person and have a backup plan for your internet if your interview is virtual.
    • Take a notebook. You can reference some notes or write down specific details the interviewer mentions during your interview. Having a notebook on hand shows your attention to detail.
    • Highlight your skills. Talk about relevant skills and milestones that apply to the position when the interviewer asks you questions.
    • Ask questions. At the end of the interview, ask the hiring manager questions about the position, culture, and team to prove that you’ve studied the position.
    • Know what to do after the interview. Who should you follow up with? Is there paperwork that you need to complete? Clarify next steps before leaving the interview.
    • Thank the interviewer. Regardless of the outcome, tell the interviewer you appreciate their time and consideration. This shows true professionalism.
  • After the interview
    • Send a thank you note 24 to 48 hours after you speak with the hiring manager.
    • Reiterate your interest in the role and what you learned from their responses to your questions.
