An interview is a formal usually prearranged meeting with an employer for a conversation that includes questions and critiqued answers for the purpose of assessing your qualifications as an applicant for a position or opportunity.

An interview is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your talents and discuss your qualifications with a potential employer. Sometimes the interview may be conducted by one person or a panel of many people, who ask you questions and then critique your answers.
