  • EMPATHIZE AND DEFINE School to Work transition
  • • I majored in Computer Engineering • I am actively looking for a job as a software developer • I made a few applications but only a few got back • I have done mock as well as real interviews and failed badly • I know my subject well but I seem to lose it in interviews • The knowledge gained in school does not prepare you for interviews • I am using internet resources and social media as I look for a job • I had my resume prepared with the help of the career center • The school should conduct mock interviews with real companies to help students overcome their fear SAY
  • • I know I am better than other students who have a job • I need to start paying of my student loans • I have to get help on interviews. Who can help me? • I should talk to my friends and see if they offer any tips. • Maybe I can talk to Prof. XYZ and see if he can recommend me • Why is this person bothering me with all these questions? • Are we there yet? • This interview deserves a year’s supply of coffee, not just one THINK
  • • This job hunt has been a frustrating process • Will I ever get a job? • No one wants to hire me. Am I really that bad? • How come Susan has a job and I don’t. I helped in all her assignments. This is so unfair. • Maybe I should move to China and try my luck there. I heard the job market is good there. • If this person does not stop asking questions, I am going to kill him • I should ask him to give me a job for providing my time for this interview FEEL
  • • The person looked stressed when talking about her job hunting experience • The lack of confidence was evident even while communicating with a person asking normal question rather than an interview • The person was clearly distracted during the interview and looked like she wanted to walk away no matter how comfortable I tried to make her • Observed a feeling of relief when I said I was done asking questions DO
  • Arghhh….I need a job right now. How long is this process going to take? Will this job hunt ever end? Hang in there. You can’t give up so easily. I think they need to include behavioral aspects in the curriculum for technical majors. I agree. A highly qualified, recently graduated computer engineer feels that education curriculum should include behavioral aspects to help students overcome their fear of interviews. Companies these days tend to look at the overall personality of individuals during interviews. Also, lack of confidence makes even a competent candidate look incompetent during interviews. PROBLEM STATEMENT
  • Thank you Jane Doe for sharing your thoughts with me!
