Please join us as we plan future events and alumni/student projects for 2018 and beyond. We are looking for members of the alumni who would like to assist with new ideas, and planning and implementation of events. Do you have creative ideas for events such as wine tasting, travel, ball games, and more? What would you like to do with your fellow alums? The committee will be chaired by a member of the MCAA – please join, as “the more the merrier!”
Assisting with Mock Interviews for Senior Students
In collaboration with Erin Dougherty, MSN, RN, CPNP, associate professor, we have the opportunity to assist with Mock interviews as part of her course “Nursing 408 Caring Practices in Transition to the Professional Role.”
Research shows that job seekers are more likely to get the job if they have written and rehearsed answers to common interview questions. As a result, many colleges utilize mock interviews to enhance students’ preparation for real-world job interviewing. The goals of this assignment are to help the student:
- Identify frequently asked questions
- Develop appropriate responses to interview questions
- Become aware of the qualifications and information conveyed to prospective employers
- Increase the level of confidence in responding to questions
- Obtain feedback about strengths and weaknesses
- Learn how to provide lasting impressions
The interviews are on the Mount Carmel College of Nursing downtown campus. All materials needed, including questions that you may ask as the interviewer, are provided in advance. The available openings for this academic year are listed below:
- Tuesday, Oct. 30, 8 to 10 a.m. and 10 a.m. to noon
- Tuesday, Jan. 15, 8 to 10 a.m. and 10 a.m. to noon
- Tuesday, March, 8 to 10 a.m.
To learn more information, please contact the Alumni Relations office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614.234.5681.
Alumni assist the Admissions office with recruiting events across Ohio. Who better than alumni to share information on the excellent foundation and educational growth opportunities that Mount Carmel offers to those seeking a nursing career or who want to further their career in nursing? Orientation is provided by Admissions staff. Volunteers are needed from the end of summer to early fall each year. We especially need alumni living in the Cleveland and Cincinnati areas! We hope you will join us.
