A resume is your first introduction to a potential employer.  The quality of your resume is a reflection of who you are and will usually determine whether or not you receive a call for an interview.  Your resume should convince the reveiwer that you meet the desired qualifications and that you have the potential to fill the position.

    Interview With Confidence 

    Whether you are headed for your first interview or your fifteenth, a mock interview can be a big help.

    Mock interviews simulate actual interviewing conditions, providing experience with the interviewing process and developing presentation skills. These sessions usually last 30 minutes. Participants will have the opportunity to have their session recorded and saved on a CD for future viewing. The interviewer wll provide feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of your interviewing skills.

    Mock interviews are available year-round. You may schedule one by visiting the Student Employent office or by calling us at 574-6119.
