Interviewing Dos and Donts

The majority of us have this bitter sweet feeling when we know we have an upcoming interview. The excitement and joy knowing that we are moving one step

forward in the hiring process and then the anxiety of the actual interview. What should I do? What should I not do? Those are the questions that are sometimes left unanswered. The Career Center hosted a Practice Interview Day in January, we actually host the event once in the fall and once in the spring semester, and an overwhelming amount of the feedback from students was that you would like a general do’s and don’ts list for interviewing.

So you’re thinking of studying abroad in the fall, but you’re not sure what that means for recruitment season. It will definitely affect your ability to attend info sessions, connect directly with employers on campus, and manage in-person interview requests . . . but it’s totally do-able and with some preparation and planning, can be a success!

Alum assists students with project

Employers regularly come to Duke to recruit graduate and undergraduate students. The Career Center helps these employers to host interviews, career fairs, and info sessions. But many employers rely on their usual marketing materials to promote their organizations as a great place to work. It can be difficult to make a connection with alums and other professionals who come to campus, and much of the company information shared can be found online. Plus, students may leave these sessions without much more knowledge about what careers in this field look like and what skills they need to get there.
