Mock Job Interviews Prepare SUNY Broome Students

If practice makes perfect some students at SUNY Broome are in good shape to start off their careers.

SUNY Broome is hosting mock interviews with local employers for engineering students this month.

Interviews are about 15-20 minutes long and students receive feedback after each session.

SUNY Broome's goal is to provide students with skills necessary to successfully seek employment after graduation. SUNY Broome officials say the program is beneficial for non-traditional students and others that have been out of the workforce.

"Doing this makes you more comfortable and since it is just a mock interview there is no need to be as nervous so you can relax and get better feedback, because you can just be yourself," said SUNY Broome student, Daniel  Husband.

"They need to know how to act. They need to know how to answer some of the questions that are going to be presented to them. They need to be prepared to talk about their skills, their strengths, their weaknesses and their experience. Whether that is work experience or volunteer experience," said HR Generalist for CMP.

Companies taking part Thursday included AMTEK and  CMP, a division of Universal Instruments.

There will be two more sessions next week with NYSEG, the Department of Transportation, and Raymond Corporation.
