Meet one-on-one with students in a variety of formats, and help them hone their abilities.
The University Career Center hosts resume reviews for students in preparation for our fall and spring career fairs. Students are encouraged to walk-in as their schedule allows to recevie assisstance. We invite employer volunteers to join us in helping students get their resumes ready for the fair. Resume reviews for Spring 2019 will take place from Monday, February 11 to Monday, February 18.
Employers can volunteer to come in from 10am-1pm or from 1pm-4pm.
Behavioral Mock Interviews
The University Career Center often hosts mock behavioral interviews for students preparing for interviews. There are options for employer volunteers to assist with one (or more) three-hour blocks of interview sessions:
- Morning: 10am - 1pm
- Afternoon: 1:30pm - 4:30pm
The Center provides a set of behavioral-based questions and a rubric as a guide. We hope to further encourage students to hone their interview skills and gain constructive feedback from our set of expert employers.
Technical Mock Interviews
The University Career Center invites interested employer volunteers to assist with presenting a technical interview workshop or conducting technical mock interviews. The greatest need often exists for practice with white-boarding and pair programming interviews.
We hope to have employers elect to host hour-long, one-on-one interviews or interactive group interview presentations, with either option providing students with detailed feedback on their performance. This is a great chance to meet students with the skill sets you are looking for, as well as to help them with their interview preparation.
Language Mock Interviews
A number of language programs at UMD hold mock interviews for their students so that they can practice their skills in a professional setting. Each interview is 20 minutes, and employers can volunteer to conduct these interviews over a 3-hour session. This is a great chance to meet students and give them feedback on their language skills, as well as providing you with the opportunity to spot talented linguists!
Serve as a "career advisor" for students seeking career assistance (students seen by appointment only). This may include a mock interview, resume review or general career advice.
