Improve Your Job Interviewing Skills by Practicing

Wednesday, April 3, 2019
4:00 – 5:30 p.m.

CUNY Graduate Center, room 7209

 

The job interview is so important because it will determine whether or not you get the job. All the hard work of networking, preparing resumes and cover letters, and applying for jobs goes for naught if the candidate messes up the interview. This workshop will significantly help students to better answer interview questions, raise confidence levels, reduce stress, and improve your chances of getting a job offer.

 

A major focus of this workshop will be actual interview practice in a safe, non-threatening environment. If you do attend the event, you will be expected to participate, but all students will be on the same level and it will be okay and safe to make mistakes.
