Weekly Interview Coaching Sessions with Industry Volunteers

Aug. 24, 2015

The Hiatt Career Center invites undergraduate students and alumni to participate in 30-minute interview coaching sessions with industry volunteers. These sessions are a great way to prepare for real job or internship interviews, industry nights, career fairs, and other upcoming opportunities.

Interview Coaching Sessions
Weekly on Tuesdays while classes are in session
5:00 – 7:00 p.m. (Sign up in B.hired for a 30-minute session)

Sign up for a 30-minute session with an interview coach of your choice to get constructive feedback in a one-on-one setting. These volunteers have signed up especially to help YOU so don't miss out! Sessions are available in-person, over the phone or via Skype, and will be labeled accordingly.

During the first 15 minutes of your session, your coach will ask you sample questions in a simulated interview situation. Then your coach will give you 15 minutes of constructive feedback on your preparation, body language, answers, articulation of ideas, and other skills and attributes that can make or break a real interview. Professional dress is highly recommended.

The interview coaches have asked that all students bring a printed copy of their resume to their session to help simulate an actual interview. If your session is on the phone or via Skype, please email these documents to your coach in advance (you will receive their email after registering).
