Doctoral student lands job with East West Center

Marie, my career advisor, helped me fully prepare for my interview.

I reached out to Marie Spaulding (career advisor for CAS) to ask if she could give me a mock interview for this job. Even though she wasn’t in the office that day, she swiftly responded encouraging me to schedule an appointment. Marie challenged me by asking many questions that I was not prepared for and provided helpful suggestions that addressed my concerns and weaknesses pertaining to this specific interview. This interview considerably strengthened my confidence, which is one crucial factor that helped me perform well in the real interview.
