Employers and students recently connected and networked during Employer Mock Interview Week event sponsored by the Career Services Center.
The event took place April 1-5 in the Ward Edwards Building. Joni Porter, operations coordinator for the Career Services Center, said 40 employers interviewed 354 students during the event.
Chelsea Wehmeyer, a senior child and family development major, said this was her first time participating in the event. She interviewed with Survival Adult Abuse Center Inc. and said her favorite part about the event was learning about the many experiences that the employer had gotten by working for the organization.
“I also enjoyed having the opportunity to perform the skills I have learned through my Career Readiness Course,” Wehmeyer said.
The students enrolled in the Career Readiness Course participated in the event as part of a class assignment.
Kaylor Lanagan, a senior in communication studies major, interviewed with Morgan Hunter Corporate Search.
“My favorite part was the feedback at the end on how I could do better,” Lanagan said. “It was helpful to have someone point them out to me personally.”
What Porter enjoyed about holding the event for students was bringing the employers to campus and connecting them with the students.
