The job interview can be one of the most challenging parts of the job search process.

Mock interviews will be conducted in a round-table setting with up to six students.

Student Walk-Ins
How would you like to give students feedback on resumes, interviewing, or career options? Walk-in hours are 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Monday-Friday during the Spring and Fall Semesters (walk-ins are not available during the Summer). A diverse range of students come into the Career Center during walk-in hours to receive advice from industry experts.

Career Fair Prep Days

Prior to our career fairs and expos, several days are set aside for targeted professional development activities for students. Employers are encouraged to take part in these events to prepare students for our fairs and expos. These are opportunities to provide students with the skills they need to be successful. The prep days address a number of topics including: resume writing, interviewing techniques, networking, and career fair prep.

Etiquette Dinner

This dinner provides an opportunity for our students to learn the art of fine dining and to understand and appreciate the protocol of business etiquette. As a table host, you will be invited to sit at a table with seven students. Table hosts will also be recognized in advance publicly and in the event program. We will also make every attempt to seat majors of your choice at your table.
