On Friday March 22nd, GTE held a resume and interview informational event for all interns. The event was led by Search Manager Robert Septak, Operators-In-Residence Gabriel Chick and Dave Jasnos, and MBA Search Intern Joe Hall.
During this educational event, the GTE staff presented valuable advice on a number of topics related to aspects of the job-searching and interviewing process. They began by sharing resume templates used by Carnegie Mellon University’s MBA students, and told interns how to adapt them to highlight undergraduate experiences. In addition, the presenters discussed common resume mistakes, “action→result” bullet point layouts, and guidance for both tailoring resumes to a specific position and making your differentiating qualities stand out.
Once the resume discussion was complete, the conversation shifted to interview advice. Some points discussed during this segment of the program included preparation, etiquette, questions to ask, and follow-up communication.
The interns truly appreciate Bobby, Dave, Gabe, and Joe taking time out of their busy schedules to share their knowledge on these crucial aspects of professional development. Partially due to events like these, GTE’s interns have historically gone on to have very successful careers.
