Career Services, in partnership with the Office of Advancement, will be hosting the inaugural Cardinal Career Prep Mock Interview & Resume Review event on Wednesday, September 27 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the gymnasium.


The purpose of this event is to provide our undergraduate students the opportunity to:
  • Practice their interviewing skills and receive professional feedback from our alumni and employer sponsors
  • Have their resumes reviewed by HR-Talent Acquisition representatives from our employer sponsors
  • Make connections with employers and alumni to build their network.
  • This event will not just prepare students for the fall career & internship fair on October 25th but also their future career opportunities.

Could you please help recruit alumni volunteers to participate in this event as interviewers and support our students?


You can do this in the following ways:
–LinkedIn — Saint Mary’s marketing has posted the following: Please repost this on your LinkedIn profile and invite your former students to sign up to participate.
–Send an email to any of your former students with whom you keep in touch inviting them to come to campus and serve as a volunteer interviewer. Here is a link to the Alumni page for more details and to sign up for the event:
Each alum will have the opportunity to conduct 5 mock interviews with students and provide professional feedback. Volunteers will be provided with sample interview questions and can also provide their own interview questions. Free lunch & Bloedow’s donuts will be provided.


The Alumni sign up deadline is Friday, August 18.


This event would not be possible without the generous support of our employer sponsors:
Fastenal (Platinum sponsor), Mayo Clinic Health System of Southwest Wisconsin (Gold sponsor), and Northwestern Mutual (Silver sponsor) and our Bronze sponsors from: Benchmark, Inc., Gundersen Health System, Hawkins Ash CPAs, Home & Community Options, MSI Metro Sales, Inc., Nexus Family Healing, THERN, INC. and WinCraft by Fanatics.


Thank you so much for your partnership and support in developing career ready graduates prepared to meet workforce needs.
