When preparing for those life changing events, it’s good to have some support. That’s exactly what the Internship and Career Services Office does. Don’t believe me? Well it’s not like I’ve mentioned this once or twice before, but I am adamant in this assertion.
Snazziest kid on campus. Who wouldn't hire him? No really, tell me, and I'll go change their mind.
After being called in to an interview in Chicago for a fantastic opportunity, I realized that this wasn’t the sort of thing that I would ever want to drop the ball on. So I called up the office, set up an appointment for a mock interview, and prepared for it.
They were more helpful than I could have imagined. They prepared questions, recorded a twenty minute interview, and then walked me through the recording to show me how I could improve, and where I was doing well.
I’m not gonna make any bets, but I am almost certain that I won’t walk out of that interview disappointed with my own performance. And that’s all I can ask for.
It’s come to my attention that some of my readership demographic has become Italian. Therefore, I will mix up my agenda for this post. In a single blow, I will write a homage to my Italian friends, and welcome them into my blog with a translated post! (See Above)
New friends, good food...perfect!
I consider myself incredibly blessed that I have stumbled upon a wonderful group of Italians. From the start, they were all accommodating to our miserable attempts at Italian, offering us support and innumerable corrections that have helped cultivate my improving language skills.
Not only that, but they have opened up for me parts of Perugia I would not have experienced otherwise. We played indoor soccer (where unfortunately I perpetuated the myth that Americans are terrible at soccer), ping-pong, gone to Mass together, and above all, learned Italian swear words.
So, thank you new-found friends, you are truly making my time here memorable.
