Fall grads gear up for graduation
At the beginning of this semester I thought this was going to be the longest semester ever. However, the end is near and new beginnings are around the corner. This semester has been good and I really feel it's preparing me for life after college.
I found mock interview day to be very useful. I am glad it was a requirement for digital portfolio taught by Maria Stover. I know many people hate interviews, which I am one of them. Having an interview that eliminates the stress of being for a real job helps ease the pain.
I went to my mock interview on Nov. 4th. It was a success and I got some feedback on what to improve upon. This is something that will help everyone prepare for interviews and I felt comfortable asking her for feedback on my resume and she told me what she thought.
Another great event that was held was the career fair. I am very glad that was an assignment in the Career Portfolio class. Everything that has been happening in this class is very beneficial for the upcoming events in all the graduates lives.
Now that it is almost mid November the pressure is really on. Trying to get all these group projects figured out and ready to present. I think that this is probably the most stressful month of the semester. I am ready for it to be Thanksgiving, which will bring on success week followed by finals week.
Finals week will be very busy. I am in 14 credit hours, so I will have 5 finals exams or projects. I was looking at the finals schedule and I couldn't believe I have a final on Dec. 11, which is also graduation day. I am less than thrilled about this. I would be alright with it if it was early in the morning, but it's at 1:30 p.m. Hopefully it doesn't take too long as graduates have to be in Petro at 5:30 for the ceremony that starts at 6:30 p.m.
I hope everyone has a great next month of the semester and to all the graduates congrats!
