Employers are still in the process of hiring college students for internships and jobs. Take a few minutes to evaluate your search strategies. It may be time to make some changes or add new activities. Let’s review what you have done, so far.
“Screening interviews”, as well as regular interviews, are frequently conducted via phone. Even though students today are usually seen using their cell phones, most of the time, they are communicating via text or in another way that is different from a traditional phone call. Unlike, Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers, who spent a large part of their teen years socializing on a telephone, many of you might be uncomfortable (and possibly even stressed) by the idea of a “phone interview”. This is understandable. Allow me to share a few tips.
Even though the Fulton Schools Fall Career Fair is over, we are still in the middle of a peak season for campus recruiting. First- and second-round interviews will be taking place over the next several weeks, on campus, virtually and at company locations.
The Fulton Schools Spring Career Fair is history. That does not mean recruiting season is over!
