Interviewing with Confidence
4-4:45 p.m., Perlstein Hall, Room 109
If you have an interview coming up or have had an interview that didn’t go well in the past, make sure you are well-prepared to conquer your next interview by attending this workshop to find out the answers to questions like, “What questions you are guaranteed to be asked?”, “What topics are taboo for a job interview?”, “how long should your answers be?”, “What are some great questions to ask your interviewer?”, and more. Research shows that interviewers reach final decisions about applicants only four minutes after meeting them; will you make a good first impression?

Friday, April 24
