How to Ace the Job Interview: Workshop on Wednesday

Join us on Wednesday, February 21 at 12:30 pm in Coltrane for this presentation led by an alum!

A very important part of the job search is the interview with a prospective employer. Your resume helps get you in the door, but it doesn’t get you the job. You do! We will cover all aspects of the interview process including phone interviews, how to prepare for the in-person interview, questions to ask, video interviews as well as how to close the interview and follow up.

Open to all students, whether you are applying for summer internships now, or want to prepare ahead for using this information later!

Let us know you’re coming or just show up:  https://middlebury.joinhandshake.com/events/110178
