INTERVIEWING FOR INTROVERTS

Wednesday, April 9; 6:00 p.m.
Career Development Center, 625 N. Jordan Ave.

Does the idea of interviewing make you nervous? Does meeting strangers and talking about career paths sound exhausting to you? Introverts are those of us who gain energy from within ourselves, rather than through the external environment. Because we tend to be more quietly reflective, it can be daunting to engage in networking and interviewing, 2 activities that are essential to a successful job search. Join some Career Development Center staff for a workshop where we will address these issues and strategize for success!
