Here is how you can:
Often the hardest part of the process is getting started. We partner with you to make it as easy as possible.
PRACTICE FOR AN INTERVIEW
Ace your interview by learning about different types of interviews, answering sample questions and more.
What is Life Ready?
Go forth knowing you’re ready for…anything.
It’s more than being ready for an interview or for your first job. It’s knowing yourself, it’s being confident. It’s skills beyond your career. It’s being secure that you will dominate the second you step foot off of this campus.
Find your way – for credit
Connect what you know
with who you know
Because connecting sounds better than networking
It sounds awful, we know…networking with people you don’t know. Most students despise it. However the result could be a relationship that is key to your career.
“You coached me at the Career Fair, helped me through the application process, and finally gave me valuable information on how to interview. What you and your office do is amazing, and I will forever be grateful.” K. Flaherty - '19, Computer Science
