Faculty Relationships

Build new or strengthen already formed relationships with faculty, which in turn can give you a connection to students through those who work with them regularly.

Mock Interviews

Assist the Office of Career Education with face-to-face student mock interviews. This gives you the opportunity to get to know students and give them a real-world interview experience.
