Hello everyone! Today marks the last post of July. This month has surely been hectic in the Link; we have conducted over 40 interviews with students for three open positions (Peer Tutor, Desk Receptionist, and PASS Mentor). The students who applied and were interviewed completely affirmed my initial impression that the students here at SU are of the highest quality. I am beyond excited to get to work with many of them this fall!

While the purpose of this blog is primarily to share academic success tips, I would like to venture out somewhat more broadly for the rest of this post and share some observations I made from the many interviews we conducted.

First off, if you haven’t yet been to the Office of Career Services, I highly recommend you go check them out (even if you aren’t looking for a job currently; it’s never too early to get started). It was very clear to me when students were and were not prepared for their interview, and trust me, you want to be one of the former when you walk into an interview. Always have a few questions about the position at the end to show that you are genuinely interested in the position. Start practicing this now while applying for part time jobs because those skills will help out tremendously when it comes time to look for a full-time position. For more information, be sure to check out the Office of Career Services!
