Prepare the Pack is a mock-interview day that will provide 20 second-year master’s students with the chance to practice their interviewing skills as they prepare to (re)enter the professional world. During this event, students will have 3 interview sessions based on general but realistic entry-level job descriptions. Each interview will conclude with the interviewers providing written and oral feedback to each student as well as a resume critique. Prior to the interviews, we will host a reception where students can practice their skills of networking with you, acting as potential employers. Prepare the Pack has proved to be a valuable and enjoyable experience for both students and volunteers! We hope you will consider serving as an interviewer for a functional area in which you have experience. Please volunteer by Monday, November 7, 2016.
