Student & Alumni Success Stories after Using CSC Resources and Services!
Thank you SO much for your help with my interview skills. I came into your office terrified of interviews, and after just a couple of meetings, I walked out a confident and prepared candidate-- and I got the job! I could not have done it without your help. You have an incredible way of providing constructive criticism. You never once made me feel incompetent, and you were very clear in the areas that I needed to work on without making me feel bad about myself. I really appreciate your approach. I felt empowered, even after our first meeting. After the second and third I felt I really had a handle on what I needed to do, but more importantly, I felt confident in my ability to successfully deliver my responses.
I feel like you really went above and beyond to make sure I left your office knowing I would succeed. You reworked your schedule twice to accommodate me before my interview, and you even brought in other staff members to help give me the feeling of a panel interview. While I really did not want to watch the recording of myself, you played it anyway! I am glad you did, because it gave me the opportunity to see that I did not look or sound as ridiculous as I felt when I was answering. Lastly, you gave me an awesome pep talk! I really, really appreciate your kind words. I actually repeated them to myself as I was waiting to be called back for the interview.
When I was waiting for you on the first day that we met, I was so nervous I honestly thought I might be sick. And that was just a mock interview! I was actually tempted to cancel the whole thing because I associate interviews with a very uncomfortable situation, and I simply did not want to do it. I pushed through my fears, and I am so glad I did. By the time you were finished with me, and I was sitting waiting to be called for me real interview, the only sign of nervousness I had was a little sweaty palms. That is a long way from wanting to throw up! I know I would not have been able to get through that interview without your help. Thank you so, so very much!
I have urged one of my classmates to come see you. I know she is really nervous about her resume and her interview skills. I know you can help :)
I am so, so grateful to you for all of your help. If I can help spread the word about the awesome work that you guys do, let me know!
Thank you, again. You are AWESOME!
