Hub Workshop: Application and Interview Prep

Wednesday, October 20, 2021
2:00-3:00 PM
Off Campus Location
Did you know that recruiters spend an average of 6 seconds to scan a résumé? Did you also know that the most popular interview technique used by HR Professionals, according to LinkedIn, is structured interviews (74%), followed by behavioral interviews (73%), phone screening (57%), and panel interviews (48%)?

Join Hub coaches for an hour-long interactive exploration of these topics. Learn what steps you can take to get recruiters to review your application for longer and also learn how to prepare for interviews so that you can anticipate questions and ultimately, impress potential employers.

This workshop consists of two parts:

1. A live coach-led session that will highlight key points for tailoring your resumé and cover letter for a specific job description. You will also learn about interview strategies, review sample interview responses, and participate in practice interview time with feedback.

2. An optional online Canvas module that can be completed after the live session where students can further develop application materials.
