Big Interview helped me to realize that you need to come prepared to interview and always have an answer for anything. It taught me how to be able to take any story and apply it to different scenarios. It also helped me to reach my goal of being able to answer random prompt questions on the spot via the Interview Roulette feature.

As a freshman, I went on a company trek to the Carolinas Healthcare System University Hospital just down the road on North Tryon and met professionals from various units, such as maternity, cardiology, emergency and volunteer services. I spoke with the volunteer coordinator and got her contact information as well as information regarding the application process. The fall of my sophomore year, I volunteered at the telemetry unit a few days a week. Since work and volunteer experience are considered for admission into the nursing program here at UNC Charlotte, I included those volunteer hours in my application. As a current nursing student, I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to develop relationships with the nurses, nurse aides, and staff at CHS University and be exposed to a healthcare environment as I aspire to work in that type of setting in the future.
I participated in a mock interview with KPMG. This mock interview allowed me to get practice with speaking to a professional recruiter. I was able to practice typical interview questions and receive feedback on my answers. This allowed me feel confident and comfortable in my interviews for my summer internships. I was able to land an internship with Bank of America in the FMAP program. Using the mock interview resource really helped me prepare for my interview.

Before I left for the NSBE conference in Pittsburgh where I received the job with Toyota, I had my resume critiqued by the Career Center. I believe I was able to perfect my resume through this meeting and give myself the edge I needed at the conference. The services available at the Career Center are often unavailable or extremely expensive outside the university. Yet, the services are often taken for granted. I don't think students realize exactly how valuable the Career Center can be, but the services provided can really be the difference in getting that co-op or internship we all long for.
