Ten Ways to Prepare for Spring Interviews


1. Get your resume edited at the Career Center

The Career Center offers many tip sheets and resume guides on their website that give step-by-step instructions to create a notable resume. After you have created a resume, send it in to their E-Resume review to have one of their staff members review it. Your resume will be sent back within 3 business days with suggested revisions.

2. Make an appointment for a mock interview with the Career Center

The career center, located in Mary Martin Hall, offers this unique option when preparing for an interview. The mock interview acts as a dress rehearsal for any interview you might be preparing for; simply make an appointment and show up in business attire with a resume and cover letter.

3. Dress to impress

You want to look professional for any meeting or interview. An employer or organization is looking for someone who can fit into their organization’s image.

4. Gain experience by volunteering or getting an internship

Internships are a great way to gain real-world experience and they look great to any organization or employer. If you can’t find time to get an internship, volunteering is another easy way to build your resume up.

5. Attend the All Majors Career Expo at the Auburn Hotel

This is a great opportunity to gain networking experience and with real employers. Come out and mingle with employers looking for interns, co-ops, part-time and full-time employees in many different fields. The expo is Tuesday, April 7, 2015 from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

6. Clean up your social media

It’s guaranteed that before you even walk into an interview your social media accounts have been looked over. Keep things professional. Rule of thumb: Would I feel okay if my grandmother saw this picture or read this post? If not, it’s safe to say it won’t look too appealing to a future employer.
