Preparing Engineering Students for Job Interviews

Garver Corporate Recruiter Laura Nick volunteered her time to talk with 80 students at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock about interview skills and resume tips. Laura participated in a panel discussion hosted by the UALR Donaghey College of Engineering and Information Technology.

The student-planned event touched on topics such as making good first impressions, creating a resume, preparing for a job interview, and following up after an interview.

"New graduates are entering a very competitive job market," said Laura. "As a human resources professional, I enjoy sharing with young engineers how to put their best foot forward during a job search; and I commend the EIT student leaders who organized the panel for helping their fellow students. My recommendation to anyone seeking a new position is to be proactive, prepared, and professional."
