Career Showcase Feedback Please fill out: tinyurl.com/iiecrashcourse Jessica L. Hinkle – –Mfg Eng Group Leader – –Malabar HBX – –HARRIS Corporation, GCSD – –Malabar: (321) (321) – –Cell: (941) (941) One Recruiter’s Advice on Attending Career Showcase: – –One thing that I have learned is that feedback is a gift – receiving feedback allows us to reflect on areas we can improve and to help us all reach our full potential. Even though I am recruiting now, I’ve been in your shoes. I know how intimidating it is to know the right things to say when you talk to a recruiter. But being prepared helps build confidence and makes the whole process a lot easier. I saw the potential in each of the students I spoke with to be great and I am passionate about developing others and helping them reach their full potential which is why I’d like to share these thoughts: 1. Research the company and job openings - even if looking for an internship research the full time jobs to help understand what positions we hire for. An internship will be a mini- version of one of these jobs. So know which one you’ll be a good fit for. 2. Know yourself - – –a. Why did you choose your major? – –b. What are you passionate about? – –c. Be ready to provide specific examples after you describe qualities about yourself.
3. Buzzwords are good but never use one unless you truly understand what they mean. It's even better if you can provide an example if his you applied one. 4. Getting your first internship is hard - use your connections first - join IIE, get an older student as mentor and network! 5. Get leadership experience in student organizations be ready to explain your responsibilities and how you've motivated others - use specifics. 6. You don't have to have manufacturing experience to work in manufacturing - recognize where you've had experience in your school life, personal life, sports, summer job where you demonstrated your problem solving skills. Be ready to talk about those instances. 7. Be specific about the role you played on a team project. It's good to give the problem statement and then focus on what contribution you specifically made. 8. Have an idea about what you want to do with your career. Being too open comes across as a lack of decisiveness. As I mentioned above, research the positions the company has and pick one that stuck out to you. 9. Too much energy can be overwhelming and come across as false confidence or nervousness. Take a deep breath and speak slowly. 10. It's ok to be nervous. Laugh it off being confident in yourself and knowing everyone of the recruiters you talk to was at one point on your side of the table. 11. Shake hands when you meet. Make eye contact. Speak up, but not too loudly. Smile. Then shake hands when you leave.
