Categories: General Date: Feb 11, 2014 Title: Mock Interview Session Offered by Department is Successful
On Friday, January 31, the Computer Science Department offered an opportunity for students to participate in a mock interview with industry recruiters from San Antonio. The event was held in the University Center’s Pecan room and was organized by the UTSA Career Counseling center. This is the first time such an event was conducted for the CS department and it featured industry representatives from USAA and PIC Business Systems who have experience interviewing individuals with a technical background. Sixteen students participated in the event and the reviews from the students were universally positive. All learned from the event, which was designed to give students experience with the interviewing process and to provide suggestions on how to do better in interviews. As a result of the success of the event, the department plans on organizing similar sessions in the future.
