Job/Internship Interview Preparation Workshop for International Students and Preparing for the Cornell Career Fair Days (Sept 9 and 10)!

September 4, Ithaca Campus

Fall semester is here, and so is job-hunting season for students seeking internships or post-graduation positions!  Cornell Career Services and the ISSO are offering this program to help international students prepare for job/internship interviews.  Learn the ins and outs of the U.S. job-hunting culture, and how to put your best self forward during the interview process; then, have a chance to practice during a mock-interview process. 

In addition, with the Career Fair Days coming up on Sept 9 (General) and Sept 10 (Technical), we will discuss tips on preparing for the fair.  If you are planning to attend the fairs, don't miss out on this program! 

For additional information on the fairs, please visit our web site. For a list of employers attending the fairs, click on "Registered Organizations". 

There are two parts to this workshop: 

Part 1) 

"Job & Internship Interview Preparation Workshop and Preparing for the Career Fair Days" on Thursday, Sept 4, 2008, 5:00 to 6:30 PM, in B45 Warren Hall (on the Ag Quad). If you plan to attend this workshop you must RSVP to: careerevents@cornell.edu.

Refreshments will be served! 

Part 2) 

One-half hour Mock/Practice Interview, on either Thursday, Sept 18, or Friday, Sept 19, some time between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM in 203 Barnes Hall.  You will sign-up for your mock interview at the workshop on  Sept 4.

Only those students who attend the Interview Preparation Workshop on Sept 4 will be eligible for the mock interviews.  All details and instructions for the interviews will be given at the workshop. On Sept 4, please bring a copy of your resume (it does not need to be perfect!) to submit when you sign-up for your mock interview.  The number of mock interview slots will be limited, thus priority will be given to juniors, seniors, and graduate students who are graduating within a year.

Thank you for your interest in the program and we hope to see you on Thursday, Sept 4.
