OCTOBER 2008
Speed Interviewing

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 students.

at the

2nd Annual Pitt-Greensburg
Speed Interviewing
Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Our event is open to all junior and senior students at Pitt-Greensburg.  Guest interviewers will have 3-5 minutes to "interview" students.  Each volunteer will be responsible for 1 question, which will be provided by the Office of Career Services, asking every student the same question.  It is our hope that you will provide valuable feedback to the students. 
This event is designed to help students improve their interviewing skills by participating in this fast paced and high pressure practice interview session.

Self-Enrollment  begins at Pitt-Greensburg October 8and 9!

 

 

The Pitt-Greensburg campus, along with the other regional campuses of the University of Pittsburgh, will take part in a pilot program for student self- enrollment beginning with the registration for Spring 2009 (2094) classes. 

 

Many students have made an appointment to meet with their advisors.  If your son/daughter has not done so, please remind him/her to contact a faculty advisor directly or contact his/her academic advisor by calling 724-836-9940.  MANDATORY ADVISING is required to be able to self-enroll.  An “Academic Advising Hold” has been placed on all accounts and will be removed once the students have met with their advisors.  As always, students will not be able to self-enroll with any type of hold on their account. 

 

Students can check the “Student Services Center” tab on the Pitt portal at my.pitt.edu for their enrollment appointment date and time.   Once the appointment begins, students can continue self-enrolling through the add/drop period.   Appointments have been assigned according to credits earned, with seniors given the earliest appointments. 

 

Students should continue to watch the Student Services area of the portal for additional information.  A video will be available to assist students with the self-enrollment process.

 

Finally, assistance will be available on October 8 from 8:30am-3:00pm.and October 9 from 8:30am-5:00pm. in the Smith Hall Lounge.  Please encourage your son/daughter to stop by if there are any questions.
