Psychology students participated in two different career training experiences on Wednesday for assessment day. Freshmen and Sophmores had the opportunity to participate in coaching sessions to prepare 30-sec professional introductions of themselves. This experience was intended to prepare them for organization interviews on campus as well as internship and practicum interviews. Social science professors coached students through this process and most of the feedback from students and professors was very positive.
The junior and senior psychology students had a slightly more indepth experience with members from the Winfield community. They were able to participate in mock interviews. Students were dressed in their most professional attire and although it was clear they were extremely nervous most of the responses after the interview were "That wasn't bad at all!" and "Thank you for making me do that."
