In the most recent event of the Honors Professional Development series, honors students had the opportunity to practice interview skills one-on-one with trained career counselors. This event came out of the close relationship between Honors and Career Services, and an ongoing commitment to helping honors students both discern career paths and prepare for them.
Yianni, a first-year honors student, said that the individualized attention of the workshop was “really valuable,” and that the career counselor he worked with provided him with a lot of constructive criticism and helpful advice, even adding a resume review to the experience. Yianni applied and interviewed for an internship following the workshop, and attributes his success in getting the internship partially to the practice interview experience he had in the honors event.
We’re happy we were able to offer this event for the first time this year, and are looking forward to offering it again in the future, and continuing to build our Professional Development series in other ways.
