Hometown: Fowler, Mich.
Meet Molly, co-coordinator of the Mock Interview program and intern at CMU’s Career Services. Molly is a human resources management major who aspires to be a corporate recruiter for human resources in her future.
Already, Molly has been offered several internship and job opportunities because of the preparation and experience she received through being involved in Career Services. “I think the definition of a quality education is preparing you for the professional world and every program at Career Services helps do that.”
Learning to sell yourself. “Career Services really gets you prepared and exposed to things you’ll be asked in an interview. It puts you in the right direction and gives you the resources that future employers are looking for.”
Peers offering constructive criticism. “It’s sometimes nerve-racking to get interviewed by someone because you know you’re being judged, but it’s less daunting to get that practice through Career Services because it’s a peer doing it. We’re on your level.”
Standing out from the crowd. “It’s very beneficial for students because they get a head start in front of the competition. If we can get students looking for internships early on, they’ll be far ahead of everyone else.”
