Business Bermuda’s second seminar in the College Student Networking Evenings summer series, held on Thursday [July 19] at the Argus Building, saw an increase of more than double the students attending last week’s seminar on resume writing.
Interview Techniques, presented by Mr. Keith Szmierek and Ms. Melody Smith of Expertise Limited, taught students how to prepare, what to expect, and how to excel in an interview.
Ms. Melody Smith commented, “The Interview Techniques seminar went extremely well. There was an exceptional turnout, and the students were engaged and asked excellent questions. In such a tough employment market, honing one’s interview skills can be the difference between getting the job or not.
“Expertise really values being a part of Business Bermuda’s student networking events which are helping Bermuda’s young people jump-start their careers.”
“Both Mr. Szmierek and Ms. Smith presented the students with insider information on how to excel in an interview. The students were given over 100 types of typical interview questions and practiced interviewing each other with assistance from the team from Expertise,” stated Ms. Cheryl Packwood, CEO of Business Bermuda.
“Interviewing for a new job can be a nerve-racking experience for anyone and even more for those who are new to the world of job seeking.
“This seminar gave students the information needed to build confidence, to prepare thoroughly, and eventually to succeed in landing a job to begin their careers.
“There were students in attendance with real, upcoming interviews, and several noted that this seminar gave them additional skills needed to do well.”
A spokesperson said, “As each seminar builds on the last, students who have attended the entire series so far will find themselves ahead of the competition.
“There is still time to sign up for the last seminar, Networking Skills presented by Ms. Jenny Smatt Adkins of Ontru Limited, and earn an invitation to the exclusive networking reception on August 8th.
“Space is very limited so be sure to sign up right away. For more information and to register for the seminars, please visit www.csne.bm, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Carmen at 292-0632.”
