Students Practice Interviewing with Expert Advisors

University Relations and the Career Center hosted “Creating Connections” on Feb. 28.  Students of all class years and interests were matched with Expert Advisors (recruiters and hiring managers as well as alumni and parent volunteers) for brief, one-on-one sessions.  Students introduced themselves and their backgrounds, and practiced their networking and presentation skills.

Expert Advisors used their experience and expertise to critique what they heard and offered valuable insights on how the presentation might have been more effective.  This structured speed-networking event  allowed advisors to meet several students in a short period of time, and allowed Wesleyan students to build professional relationships and connections while preparing to join the professional workforce in the future.
