Each fall, our recruiters lead mock interviews with SJFC accounting undergraduates. The mock interview includes 20 minutes of live, formal interviewing and five minutes of real-time feedback. Our recruiters follow-up with immediate, documented feedback for the students on what they did or did not do and what lead to their impressions cited. This behavioral, “proof-based” style interview ensures the best learning environment for the students.
The Internship Symposium provides the opportunity for student interns to connect with currently employed alumni in a field related to their major. Our Nazareth alumni facilitate conversations and interviews with the interns where they can describe key components of their internship. Alumni also serve as evaluators to provide recommendations and suggestions based on their own experiences.
Spring Job & Internship Fair
