Students discuss interviews
Impression ma tter of selling self
By MARTHA WAGGONER
Making a good impression in an interview
with potential employers is a matter of
selling yourself, according to 'students
involved recently in an on-campus recruiting
"You try to show someone you could help
his company," said Jim Northington, a
UNC senior wfio is preparing for his second
Graduate school interviews differ from
sessions with employers, according to Jane
Orahood. "They're trying to sell themselves
rather than you trying to sell yourself."
Orahood and Northineton were among
the students questioned recently "who have
participated in interviews arranged through
an on-campus recruiting program sponsored
by the Career Planning and Placement
Students questioned agreed that
preparation is the basic step in preparing for
a job interview. A student can prepare by
reading the literature provided by the
company. Other students prepare by talking
to other interviewees.
One recruiter said finding out about the
interviewing company is the most important
step. "One might just "be the job that's very
important to you," Eaton Corporation
recruiter Sunnie Hoffman said. "You should
be interested enough to do a little research on
"Companies are looking for people really
interested in working for their company.
They're looking for someone who's looking
for something more opportunity, growth.
Some students sound like they want the same
job 20 years from now."
She added that a degree in business
administration gives a student "the
opportunity to go in many different
directions. Today you'ean't get through the
door without a college degree.
"An MBA is not that important, but in 10
years, you won't be able to get a job without
one. People now are being very selective."
James Krause, a May 1977 graduate using
the recruiting program, advised students to
"stay in school, get as many degrees as you
can and when they throw you out, the jobs
come running to you."
Krause, who had a job and quit , said he is
23 and does not know what he wants to do. "I
think that's common," he said. "Ninety-five
percent of the students probably don't know
what they want to do."
Buddy Lewter. a senior, has been through
1 1 interviews. "Right ,now 1 don't have any
prospects," he said. "So far it's been a
disappointment at the mailbox."

Recruiting picks up again from January to
early April during the spring, she said.
Most of the on-campus activity by
employers is limited to screening interviews,
Kendall said. "If the company is interested in
you. they will probably want to interview
you in the home office."
The interviewers include representatives
from businesses, federal organizations, non
profit organizations and graduate schools.
Graduate school interviews are not for
application but rather offer the students an
opportunity to gather information about the
different schools and their programs.
Students who wish to participate in the
recruiting program should attend a

vacancies. She advises students not to be
discouraged if they are not interested in the
types of jobs offered through on-campus
recruiting. "This is only one of many ways to
get a job." she said,

The heart of the book is the guilt or

center of this question. But Reston says his
talks with Little were unproductive. She had
been trained by her attorney, Jerry Paul, on
how to answer questions, Reston says, and
she was so accustomed to answering them
that talking to her was of little use.
Instead, Reston relies on the opinions of
others and evidence he found.

realize his own prejudices. I hope it raises the
