    Odds are, your internship or co-op search will include an interview! This event is an open session that will allow you to explore and practice all aspects of professional interviewing. There will be a brief 15-minute presentation to go over interviewing tips and strategies to start. Afterwards, there will be four stations staffed by representatives from Indeed and members of the Center for Career Development staff that focus on some of the toughest aspects of interviewing that you can rotate through as desired, and you can leave when you’re done!
