Veteran

James Harper Cave Creek, AZ

Would someone be willing to interview me for a crime analyst position or at least give me specific pointers for my interview next week?

Yes very helpful. It was 3 hours long and included a time constrained practical exercise for which I was not really prepared. Speed was the discriminator between me and my competition.

Hello James,

I would be happy to provide some specific points for your interview next week, so long as they are not necessarily specific to the position you are applying for, as I am not an expert there. As far as cultivating possible industry-specific questions, and then preparing them, I would recommend this article from The Muse:

To develop more broad interview skills, the Huffington Post has this a great cheat sheet:

And to dovetail off of that article's suggestion to watch other interviews, I recommend picking one of these TED Talks that would more visually illustrate how to present yourself:

Let me know if you could use more specific resources, and let us know how the interview goes!

Best,

Andrea
