Time to prepare for those interviews!

September was incredibly busy with numerous companies on campus to meet with Bentley students.  From BBQs, ice cream trucks, information tables, and major specific networking nights to the largest Bentley Career Fair ever our students really impressed the hundreds of employers and alumni who came to campus.  Do you know what October brings? For many of you it will be interviews!  Whether this is your first time interviewing or you have had several it always helps to prepare and practice! I strongly suggest you go into BentleyLink to the EVENTS tab and then the WORKSHOPS and EMPLOYER EVENTS tab and sign up  for the UCS Advanced Interview Preparation workshop. These are small group sessions to help you succeed on your interviews.  They are run by Len Morrison, Director of Undergraduate Career Services, and the students who have participated were better/stronger interviewees!  Also, on your BentleyLink home page you have access to Interview Stream an on-line 24/7 mock interview system. You just need to create an account and your Bentley laptop and you can practice at  a time convenient for you.  Don’t wait to get the call or email asking you to interview – sign up now for the session with Len and start practicing on Interview Stream so you are ready for that call.
