Are you preparing for a college interview or are you on the fence about setting up a college interview?
College interviews tend to cause students a tremendous amount of stress, but remember it's just another chance to get yourself in front of someone who represents the college and who holds weight in admissions decisions. Having an interview is the best way to show your interest in attending the college, so take advantage and let your personality shine through! Start by trying to find something in common with your interviewer. Once you find a common ground, it's usually easier to talk to someone you don't know.
If you are thinking of forgoing a college internship before you graduate, you may want to think again. Internships provide great real-world experience to students and help supplement material learned in the classroom. And if that is not enough to get you started on your internship search, consider this - internships make you more desirable to employers. The knowledge you gain helps you develop your skills and even teaches you how to succeed in the professional world, traits employers look for in future hires.
You've recently graduated from college. Congratulations! Over the past four years, you have grown into an adult, and now you are ready to set out on your own. That means it is time to start adulting! And what better way to start adulting than by getting your finances under control?!
Gone are the days when your parents told you when it was time to do your homework, clean your room, or do your laundry. College is the time when you are transitioning from being a teenager to a real adult (scary, I know)!
In order to be successful, self discipline is essential. When you don't have anyone telling you what to do, it can be very difficult to turn down a sporting event or party so you can write a paper or study. But without self-discipline, you could find yourself falling behind on your school work which can be difficult to recover from.
