The Spring Speed Mentoring Seminar was held on March 27th, 2013 in the Chesapeake Room of the University Union.
The purpose of the seminar is to provide students with mulitiple prespectives on how they present themselves in a professional manner using the speed dating model. Each student rotates among multiple interviewers, providing a brief "elevator speech" and interviewing for an entry level position. Health professional mentors provide the students with feedback regarding their body language, responsiveness, etc.
News Flash! Attention Health Science Majors!
