Preparing for Campus Interviews
You only get one chance to make a first impression! Preparing for your interview whether it is on campus or at the employer's location is the key to making a lasting, positive impression. Demonstrating your enthusiasm and interest will be most effective if you are confident, armed with good information about the company and solid questions and examples of your skills.
The Career Resource Centers located in each Career Services office maintains corporate literature of organizations that participate in Campus Recruiting. These materials are on reserve and must be read in the office only. The Internet is also an integral part of your research activity. You can begin by seeing if we have already linked to the company's home page here on this web site.
In addition to gaining company information, be sure to review a complete job description also on reserve in the Career Services office.
Many employers hold information sessions the night before interviews are held on campus. Most are mandatory for those candidates who have been selected to interview. These sessions are invaluable for gathering more specific information about the company and to assist the employer in getting better aquatinted with the candidates in an informal setting.
Be sure to check with your Career Services office to see about special interview workshops, videotapes and mock interview sessions to assist with your individual interviewing concerns. Remember to BE PREPARED!!!
