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.
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!
PSYC123 The Psychology of Getting Hired
This hybrid (online and in person) course requires students to engage in a 20-minute in-person mock interview. With over 500 students enrolled each semester, we seek employer volunteers to provide a 3-hour block of time over a 2-week period mid semester.
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.
