    What goes on in a congressional interview? What can I do that will help me stand out above other candidates? I have interviews this week and I just want to know what to expect going into it.
    Thank you so much.

    As @time2 stated above, there are numerous threads on the forum regarding the topic.

    Here are but a few:

    My favorite tips:
    • Dress suitably for the region.
    • Use good posture.
    • Know a bit about the Academy (and the MOC)
    • Role play some questions at home, especially if you have never been interviewed for job etc. before.
    • Be prepared for a large panel interview (Most MOC's use a committee interview)
    • Listen to each question and take a moment and think before answering.....don't blurt.
    • Prepare a couple of questions to ask the interviewer(s) ahead of time.
    • Read up on key current events.
    • Be yourself.
