On Campus Interviewing

It’s post-Expo and we are in full swing with interviews on campus! We talk a lot about tips for interviewing: what to wear, questions to ask, but we also need to discuss another topic: the ethics of interviewing on campus. An interview is a business commitment; once you apply and are granted an interview, it is expected that you will attend.

A fun article in honor of the first day of OCR You all should know by now that I LOVE NPR! Yup. I say it loud and I say it proud: I love NPR! I love it even more when I can use it for work (like we did when discussing Elevator Pitches). Well, courtesy of NPR comes yet another post from me, this time about preschoolers and interviewing. It really made me laugh. Then it made me feel bad for these little tykes. My preschool days were carefree bliss of making play dough (and of course taste testing it), […]

What to Wear for the Interview

On-Campus Recruiting begins today so we thought we’d share some tips on dressing for an interview. Although certain qualifications and skills are mandatory for many jobs, the interview can often make or break one’s chances. First impressions say a lot, and what interviewers absorb in the first 30 seconds is what they are most likely to remember. You’ll want that first impression to be not just a good one, but also a great one. Not only do you need to keep a cool composure, be confident in your skills and know all about the organization you are interviewing with, you […]
