Interviewing Practice for Geneseo Students

Geneseo students have the opportunity to practice and perfect their interviewing skills through the Mock Interview Program sponsored by Career Services and the Geneseo Alumni Association.

Whether youl need the skills for a position immediately after college or for the graduate school admission process, it’s better to refine those skills while still a student at Geneseo.  Alumni from the Geneseo Alumni Board will be conducting these half hour interviews and providing feedback.

Interviews will be held on Saturday, January 14th from 10am – 12pm at the Kane Firm, 5225 Sheridan Drive, Williamsville, NY 14221.

To sign up please contact Lynette Hilts at the Kane Firm, 716-633-7022 or [email protected] Upon registration the students will receive more details regarding interview. 

Registration opens 12/15 and with only 20 interview slots available, this event will fill up fast! If you have questions please contact either Bruno Lombardo at – [email protected] or Mark Kane at – [email protected]

Student-tested Tips for Surviving Finals

1.   Check out the Final Exam Schedule so that you know when your exams will be and plan ahead so that you give yourself plenty of time to study for each of them.
2.    Study in chunks.  Block off specific hours of your schedule to study for each test you have to take. A ten minute study break every few hours is also a good idea.
3.     Schedule in some exercise.  There’s no better way to relieve stress.  Don’t plan on studying non-stop the whole week.
4.    Take advantage of study groups.  A group can motivate you to get started and discussing difficult concepts with each other can aid in understanding.
5.    Take advantage of review sessions.  Most professors will touch on certain topics more heavily than others in review sessions and this might give you a better idea of what will be on the exam.
6.    Take advantage of your professor’s office hours.  If you’re unsure about anything, touch base with your professor or TA.
7.    Make sure you have the materials you’ll need for the test the night before.  Bring a back-up pen or pencil.
8.    Get a good night’s rest  and have a good breakfast before your test.  If you follow tip #1, you won’t have to stay up all night cramming.
9.    Don’t wait until your class is about to begin to get a bluebook.  If you need a blue book, you can pick it up at the Library Service Desk for 15 cents.
10.  Don’t psych yourself out.  You’ve studied, so don’t talk yourself into doing poorly.  Put yourself in confidence mode, visualize it all going right and think A+.
