International Students Learn Interview Skills At Centenary
The School of International Programs at Centenary College recently conducted a mock interview exercise where 66 students from Korea, China and Colombia who were enrolled in the Summer Culture and Language Program learned from local business executives how interviews are conducted in the United States.
To prepare for the exercise, students participated in a résumé writing workshop and interview informational session. For many of these students, it was their first experience learning about the interview process. Outside representatives who served as interviewers were: Sanford Josephson, Director of Marketing and Public Relations, Matheny Medical and Educational Center; Andrea Kirchuk, Co-Owner of Computer Images Web; Liz McDonough, Business Development Representative of Visions Federal Credit Union; Yolanda Sheffield Williams'06; Director of Major Gifts, Easter Seals; Steve Van Houten, Director of Human Resources, Nisivoccia & Company: Arlene Swanston, Director of Human Resources, Abilities of Northwest Jersey, Inc.; Laurie Rapisardi, Executive Director of Rutherfurd Hall; Bob Eberle, Panther Valley Pharmacy; and David Schmeltze, Biz Budding, Inc.
"I enjoy being asked to participate in the Summer Culture and Language Program mock interviews every year," said Yolanda Sheffeld Williams class of 2006. "It is fascinating to learn about the students' career goals and discuss their backgrounds, views of the United States and the various field trips they attend during their stay here. What is most exciting about their time at Centenary is how much better their English skills become, how much their self-confidence increases and how they have the opportunity to meet new friends and create great memories."
