Students to participate in mock interviews at Dalloway’s Coffeehouse, prepare for career and internship opportunities

first_imgSaint Mary’s students will gather in Dalloway’s Coffeehouse on Wednesday to participate in “Mock Interview Day,” an event hosted by the Career Crossings Office. Angela Fitzpatrick, the office’s assistant director, organized this career development opportunity with the hope that students would become more familiar with job-interviewing skills.Fitzpatrick and the rest of the Career Crossings Office have been planning different spring programs since before winter break. “Mock interviews was one [event] we decided we could try to make happen because more and more we’re seeing students who need practice,” she said. Students who will be attending the mock interviews will gain an advantage in their interviewing skills, Fitzpatrick added. “The more they practice, then the more confident they’ll be and professional,” she said.Fitzpatrick utilized Saint Mary’s employer relations to reach out to off-campus human resources professionals, and invited them to participate in Mock Interview Day. These experts will ensure that participants experience a realistic interview scenario, she said. “There are HR, talent acquisition managers … that actually are HR people who interview and screen people,” Fitzpatrick said. “That’s who we have actually doing the mock interviews.” Throughout the month of January, students received multiple emails from the Career Crossings Office inviting them to RSVP for the event through a Google form. Students were asked to upload their resumes, select interview times and answer questions based on their interests and goals. Each mock interview is split into two sections: 30 minutes of interviewing and 15 minutes of feedback and questions and answers.Tammy Wever, the administrative assistant of the Career Crossings Office, will prepare folders — containing the student’s resume and specific questions pertaining to their major — for the HR professionals to use as a resource during interviews.Each professional will interview three or four Saint Mary’s students. In regards to preparation, Fitzpatrick said students have been visiting the Career Crossings Office throughout the week asking for tips and having their resume’s looked at. Junior Emma Schramko is one of the students participating in tomorrow’s event. “I encouraged myself to sign up because I thought it was a unique and beneficial opportunity, unlike anything else I have ever participated in,” said junior Emma Schramko, one of the students participating in tomorrow’s event. Schramko said the event can provide students with a feeling of comfort and familiarity as they prepare for a real job interview in the future. “I hope to gain a new level of comfort from sitting through a mock interview in a place that I am comfortable and familiar with [at Saint Mary’s],” she said. Tags: Career Crossings Office, Dalloway’s Coffeehouse, Mock Interviewslast_img read more
