When it comes to interviewing, a little practice goes a long way.
Speed interviewing provides a setting where students will experience
15-20 typical interview questions. PLUS they’ll have the chance to
network with Pitt-Greensburg alumni and other area professionals.
The set-up is similar to speed dating. Pitt-Greensburg alumni and
business professionals will act as the interviewers. Students spend
about 5 minutes answering an interview question and receiving
feedback. When the bell rings, it’s time to move on to the next
interviewer and question!
This event will take
place on Wednesday, November 12, 2008. If you are a business
professional working in the vicinity of Pitt-Greensburg, please consider
volunteering as an interviewer. It's a great way to help out our
Our event is
open to all junior and senior students at Pitt-Greensburg. Guest

It is our hope that you will provide valuable feedback to the students.
This event is designed to help students improve their interviewing

credit-worthy learning experience and to develop as global

is an increasingly important and attractive component of a
well-rounded international education. As such, the University
encourages all students to consider the option to study abroad
as a significant enhancement of their undergraduate education.
Students who travel and study in another country can complement
their major or minor coursework or simply deepen their
appreciation of another culture. Study abroad provides students
a chance to explore first-hand the language, history, and people
of another land and, in the process, gain a competitive edge in
the employment marketplace.
The Study Abroad Office identifies these opportunities as part
of the University’s academic offering and not simply a student
service. The Study Abroad Office assists students who are
interested in exploring the study abroad options available:
University-sponsored Panther Programs, exchange programs, and
various third-party Pitt-recognized programs.
