Successful Interviewing

A critical component of the job search is a successful interview strategy. Interviews are generally the first face-to-face meeting between a student and prospective employer. Therefore, it is imperative that a student not only make a favorable impression, but use the limited time in an interview to demonstrate his or her competency, sincere interest, skills, individual strengths, and unique fit with the employer.

We offer a number of Programs and Events  to help students at all levels to practice interview skills. And we strongly encourage you to schedule appointments with your career advisor to discuss individualized interviewing strategies.
