Interviewing Day, sponsored by the Business/Economics Department took place on Sept. 30 from 3-8 p.m. Twenty companies participated, along with over 40 students from the Business/Economics Department.

The meetings were in a speed interviewing format lasting from 3-6:15 p.m., after which there was a feedback session in The Forum from 6:30-7:00 p.m. and dinner from 7-8 p.m. Over 152 interviews were going on simultaneously for 3 hours and 15 minutes–an amazing display of talent.

The purpose of the Day was for students to obtain internships and jobs. Only juniors and seniors, along with Intermediate Accounting students who are sophomore hopefuls, were invited to attend the event.

Beforehand, the students also were invited to attend a session highlighting interviewing skills presented by Career Services. Resume writing is one of these essential skills, and Career Services helps immensely in this area.

This is the 4th year for Interviewing Day. Each year the event grows, with more companies and students joining in the energy of the day. This year, Constellation Energy, T. Rowe Price, Corporate Brokers, The Mergis Group, Gross Mendelsohn, CPAs, Bond Beebe, CPAs, WABC, CPAS, and a host of others all attended Interviewing Day.
