I liked the concrete advice. I feel I can apply this to my future interviews confidently.
I know so much more now and have a new outlook on my interviewing and overall future.
The Practice Interview Program (PIP) offers students the opportunity to develop and practice interviewing skills essential for success in any future endeavor – whether it be finding an internship, conducting a job search, or applying to graduate school.
About 300 students participate in the program each time it is held. Students sign up for a one hour practice interview slot and submit a resume and job description or a graduate school program description. During the practice interview session, volunteers lead students through typical screening interviews and provide feedback on each student’s performance and their resume.
Interviewing is often met with trepidation. The Practice Interview Program (PIP) seeks to reduce the stress students feel and increase confidence. Based on student evaluations, PIP is having a significant impact on improving students' interviewing skills, their sense of career and vocation, and appreciation of the skills they are developing in their major. Students are able to better articulate how their liberal arts education and skills will serve them in their chosen professional setting. PIP is also a wonderful way for students to connect with Hamline alumni and employers to begin building their professional network.
