Meet one-on-one with students in a variety of formats, and help them hone their abilities. Several opportunities exist for this:
We typically conduct a week of resume reviews the week before our two major career fairs in the fall and in the spring. Students come in on a walk-in basis and meet with employer volunteers who assist them in polishing their resume ready for the fair. Resume reviews for Spring 2018 will take place from Monday, February 12 to Monday, February 19. Employers can volunteer to come in from 10am-1pm or from 1pm-4pm.
Behavioral Mock Interviews
The University Career Center is hosting a Mock Interview Clinic to help our students prepare for interviews post the Career Fair. We will be host 2 days of mock behavioral interviews, Thursday, March 1 and Friday, March 2. These interviews will be approximately 30 minutes in length each. There will be 2, three-hour blocks of interview sessions:
- Morning: 10am - 1pm
- Afternoon: 1.30pm - 4.30pm
We are looking for employer volunteers to come in for one or both sessions on either day. The Center can provide a set of behavioral based questions, or employers are welcome to use a set of their own. We hope to further encourage students to hone their interview skills and gain constructive feedback from our set of expert employers.
Technical Mock Interviews
We are always looking for employer volunteers who can assist with either presenting a technical interview workshop or conducting a mock interview, particularly around career fair times. The greatest need often exists for practice with white-boarding and code pairing 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.
Spanish and Arabic Mock Interviews
Both the Arabic & Spanish 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.
