  • One of the things that is most striking about the NACE research findings are the skills that employers identified as lacking in today’s graduates. This is extremely key, because these are the objections that you may encounter this year and you will need to be prepared to address these objections in selling your students to the types of employers that NACE surveyed.
  • You don’t have to worry @ setting up the intv. Globe has done all the work for you, getting possible employers here t meet with you. You will need to be dressed professionally in the your best, most conservative intvw suit (navy, black or gray for men & women), wearing very little if any cologne/perfume, fresh breath, trimmed neat haircut, very little jewelry (no lip or nose piercing). Bring 2x the # of resumes as # of companies that should be in attendance. Get the list of companies that are coming and do as much advance rsch o nthem as you can. Bring a portfolio of your work if you have things to show such as projects, flow charts, spreadsheets. You’ll know as much as you can about the person you’re going to meet. When you meet each person, shake hands firmly with the same degree or pressure they use (it helps to practice!) You will mirror them, meaning you subtly do exactly what they do – lean forward, back, cross legs, (but don’t cross arms b/c of its negative perception of being defensive). Basically, mirroring means you do the same thing they do just a few seconds after them. It puts people at ease. Be in control at all times. If they ramble on, try to bring them back to the point. Remember, this is your 45 minutes to an hour, and you won’t have much time to do the talking, so you have to make the most of this opportunity.TIP: No one ever learned the right way to interview. You can’t run the risk that the person you meet has any idea what they’re doing –you have to control the interview process.
