Volunteer today and help our students thrive tomorrow! 

The Office of Career Services along with the Office of Advancement are hosting the Cardinal Career Prep, a mock interview and resume review event for our current undergraduate students in Winona. We are seeking alumni volunteers who are willing come to campus to make connections with tomorrows shining stars to conduct mock interviews and provide interview and resume feedback that will help students prepare for future interviews.

Event Details:
In-Person Interviews will be held on Wednesday, September 27, 2023, at Saint Mary's Winona Campus Gymnasium. Your commitment would start at 8:30 a.m. and conclude by 1:30 p.m. with lunch provided. A hospitality room with snacks and refreshments will be available for volunteers throughout the event. Alumni who participate are encouraged to create a profile on Handshake. Alumni volunteers will participate in up to 5 student interviews. Each interview will last for 30 minutes including 10 minutes for feedback. Questions for the mock interviews will be provided, although you are encouraged to have industry-specific or other interview questions ready, to give students the most realistic experience. After all interviews are completed alumni are invited to the cafeteria for a complimentary lunch with other alumni and employer sponsors.
