Preparing for Interviews

>Preparing for an interview is more than pressing your suit and practicing your interview answers.  Many students forget the most important part of preparation — researching the company.  Our on-campus recruiters have indicated that students who know more in depth information about the company are those candidates who obtain second round interview invitations. Click here to read the results from our fall post-recruiting survey, including comments from both recruiters and JSG students.

Throughout the fall and spring semesters, employers will actively participate in Geosciences Career Center events and programs. Connect with employers and learn more about the companies and the professional opportunities available to students.
