Students Polish Skills in Mock Interviews

Each spring, Western Career Services assembles a panel to interview students seeking jobs, internships and graduate-school admissions.

This year's event took place in the Board Meeting Room at the University Center, where a critical panel – Mariah Green, career and academic advisor, student Scott Cantril, Kim Gailley, director of Human Resources, and Greg White, assistant director of Continuing Education – posed questions and offered critiques of the students' responses.

They addressed issues concerning proper clothing, attitude, posture and responsiveness. One student learned she needed to show more animation and share her smile. Another learned that enthusiasm is great but not to overdo it. They suggested that to yet another that if he had to answer to a shortcoming, he needed share what he had learned from the mistake.

All left better prepared to make their marks in the world.
