Simulated Job Interviews June 2014
Have you ever been to a job interview? Will you be going to one in the near future? Don't miss "Simulated Job Interviews" the next time it is offered. In this class we give you some pointers on how to act in an interview and then we let you practice. You interview others and they interview you. Everyone seems to enjoy it, and everyone gets immediate feedback from the interviewer. They'll let you know, right away, if you speak clearly, are easily understood, mumble and are hard to understand, or even if you are incoherent. That's all good information because you know where you stand right now, and what you have to strive for. The discussions and feedback definitely give the students something to think about. HELP! ¡Ayúdame! I have a JOB INTERVIEW and it's in ENGLISH!!!
Today each student participated in 5 interviews. UEM Language Center professors helped out, taking turns interviewing or circulating among the tables giving advice or gesturing advice as the interviews progressed. "Sit up straight." "Stop playing with your pen, beard, hair." Natalia Pastor, from the GOE- the UEM Career Placement Center, was also listening in attentively. At the end of the hour she commented on the activity, gave us some suggestions, and offered the help of the GOE when the students are looking for internships and jobs. This activity was sponsored by the UEM Language Center in collaboration with the GOE. You're welcome to make an appointment with them or visit them in Building E. Thank you Mitch, Luis, Leticia and Natalia for making this activity possible.
