During this time in the program, many of us are applying to and interviewing for internship sites for next year. So, the Assistant Director of Student Affairs for Career Development and Planning visited our class to give us some pointers. We discussed the difference between a resume and CV, how to develop a resume/CV that will get the interview, and interview skills and attire to finally get the internship or job. One of our brave cohort members even volunteered to go through a mock interview to supplement some of the tips that we talked about.
