CS Presentations

Interview Preparation Assistance

Career Services is happy to extend interview preparation assistance to faculty who may provide/require practice (mock) interviews as a part of their course(s). Our office is able to host the interviews, keeping record of student attendance if needed, or a CS staff member can come to a location designated by the faculty member.

To request assistance in this area, faculty will need to complete and submit the Faculty Request Form. Assistance will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis and, due to high demand, forms must be submitted prior to or within the first 3 weeks of the current semester. We will do our best to accommodate all submitted requests.

Due to CS staff availability, if a faculty member wishes to have their students complete a practice (mock) interview as a required assignment, it is strongly recommended that students are being encouraged to schedule their interview as soon as possible and are provided with a minimum of four (4) weeks to complete their interview.

Note: It is highly recommended that faculty have Career Services come in and present on Interviewing Skills prior to assigning their students to complete a practice (mock) interview. See the information above for scheduling a presentation.

Please contact Career Services with any questions.

The Career proficiencies (CL001 - 004) were developed to ensure that all students graduate with appropriate career planning knowledge and a professional resume and cover letter. Although the proficiencies are zero credit, failing any proficiency will result in an F on the student's transcript. All four proficiencies (CL001 - 004) are required for graduation, and studens may not graduate on time if any proficiency is failed or unfulfilled.

Many majors have incorporated CL004 into specific courses. In these majors, students will enroll in a required major course and are prompted to enroll in a specific section of CL004. If a student's major does not have a co-requisite CL004 section, they may sign up for a section administered by staff within the Office of Career Services. Should a student have any questions or concerns regarding registering for the appropriate section, they are encouraged to contact their academic advisor. Faculty are encouraged to contact their department chair and/or the Office of Career Services with any questions.
