Be prepared for that big interview! In a Mock Interview, you will be interviewed by a Career Counselor and videotaped. You will be asked traditional and behavioral interviewing questions and asked to respond as if in an actual job interview. The counselor can tailor the interview to a specific position or industry if you request this in advance. Review the video following the interview and gain valuable insight and tips on how to improve your interview skills and performance.
The CSC offers the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory assessments. For a fee of $15.00 for the MBTI and $10.00 for the Strong, students and alumni can take these assessments on-line and receive a comprehensive profile report based on your answers. A follow-up appointment is scheduled with a Career Counselor to review your results. Payment for the assessments is accepted by credit card (online) or by cash or check at our office.
The Center hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including Career Fairs, Employer Information Sessions, On-campus Recruiting, Professional Development Workshops, and more. Stay up to date with our Career Events Calendar or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
