Interviewee brief : There is a placement in an organization which you want. It is exactly what you want and would look great on your cv. Of course there will be a lot of people who want this opportunity. You will then be interviewed by different people in the company. Prepare to answer their questions based on your experience and what you have read.
Interviewer brief: You work in an organization. You are offering a placement in your organization. You want to find the right person. The BEST person for the job. You will now have to interview different candidates who think it is exactly what they want and that it would look great on their cv. You will have to be careful and and make sure that they are not lying to you.
