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. It is our policy that, if you are a no-show for an interview, you will be suspended from the BRIDGE immediately. The Career Development Center does not advocate missing classes for interviews and we recommend that you do your […]

Are Your Listening Skills Killing Your Chances Of Landing A Job?

With On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) in full swing we thought this post from Blog by Debra Wheatman was very pertinent. Enjoy! Good Luck! Schedule a Mock Interview! Come to Interview Tips (every Monday at 5pm)! In this article Debra explains, “It is normal and expected that you will be slightly nervous. The art of listening should not be diminished! Oftentimes, people tend to talk more when they are nervous. During an interview this can work against you.” She goes on to explain the other problem with failing to listen, “you may miss some important clues or red flags related to […]

Hitting with a spoon? Deal Breaker. And other Interview Do’s & Don’ts you can learn from toddlers

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), […]

Interview Questions for YOU to Ask

At the end of every interview they turn to you and say “Do you have any questions for us?” and if you answered “No,” it’s not the worst mistake but if you really want to wow them having a few questions is a great way to make a GREAT impression.

So here it is…interview questions YOU can ask (and help make a great impression)!   Interviews aren’t a one […]

Um…Like…You Should Seriously Hire Me

When I was in graduate school I had to do a mock interview in front of my entire class. Then the class, as well as my Professor (who had 7 Masters and 2 Ph.D’s –no joke!) critiqued me. As horrifying as this sounds, it was every bit! But it was also amazingly helpful. I think I owe all the jobs I’ve gotten due to that class. While I was doing some research on Mock Interview tips I came across this great post on SUNY Cortland’s Career Services blog and had to share it. On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) starts February 7th, get […]

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 […]
