The Record Summer 2015 - How Not to Act In An Interview


How Not to Act In An Interview

Imagine sitting across from a stranger and looking intently into each other's eyes, focused on learning the most you can about each other through just a brief, scheduled conversation. You're both on your best behavior, aiming to showcase your potential and to appear well-mannered, interesting, bright. After all, you've got only a short amount of time in which to make a strong first impression and establish a meaningful connection.

You could be speed dating, or you could be interviewing for your first job after college!

In Fall 2014, graduating seniors gathered at Jo's Java for an interview workshop sponsored by the Office of Advancement and Alumni Relations in partnership with the Center for Career and Calling. Attendees watched a TED Talk about interview skills and then engaged in speed-dating-style mock interviewing with Greenville College alumni, who were eager to help current students practice the skills they'd need to launch professional careers.

In order to spread the word on campus about the free coffee and fun opportunity to practice interviewing and networking skills in a low-pressure, supportive environment, several GC students made a hilarious video to play during chapel announcements.

Sure, there's lots of advice out there about how to succeed in a job interview. But have you ever wondered what not to do? Let the short video, "How Not to Act In An Interview," demonstrate. Watch below or click here.
