RII's Senior Technical Recruiter, Maria Cooper, shares her tips on how to prepare for an interview at RII.


If you’re reading this blog, you’re most likely pRIIparing for an interview at RII or thinking about applying. Kudos to you for taking the time to visit our website and clicking around enough to find this post!


As a recruiter at RII, I work with multiple candidates each week and I appreciate when someone has put in the effort to prepare for their interview; it really does make a difference for both the interviewer and interviewee. It facilitates engaging conversations, helps a candidate feel more relaxed, and demonstrates a candidate’s interest in the role.


Here are a few quick resources to help you get ready for your RII interview.


Resources on our Website

I recommend visiting our Careers page to learn about a few of our benefits and what life at RII is like. Then head to our Interview Process page to read a step-by-step breakdown of the process so you know what to expect at each stage of your interview. At the bottom of that page, you’ll also find some useful interview tips (Pro tip: read up on our Core Values).


We pRIIpared these resources to help you feel comfortable going into your interview, but the best interview tip we can give you is to be yourself. Maybe it sounds cheesy to you, but we really mean it. We need each team member to bring their interests and passions to work every day, as our differences make us more innovative and help us solve complex problems for our customers. At RII, we want you to let your geek flag fly.
