For most, interviewing for a potential job or internship is a nerve-wracking experience.
But this week, McDaniel College students got the opportunity to practice their interview skills in low-pressure situations, while receiving immediate feedback and all the while still making connections for possible future employment.
The college’s annual Interviewing Day is an event run through McDaniel’s accounting program. It included about 25 firms — a mixture of accounting and financial, Kerry Duvall, an assistant professor of accounting, said. The students involved are usually juniors and seniors, though occasionally sophomores, who are accounting or economics majors, participate.
Students have 20 minutes with each company to interview, and each student has four or five interviews that day, she said.
“It's very similar to speed dating but it's speed interviewing,” Duvall added.
