The Pros of Project Work

Filed in From the Staff by on March 28, 2012

One of the many great things about WPI is the experience gained through project work. Through the two qualifying projects and other group based class work, students are well prepared to answer questions about their past experiences. This is especially important for job interviews becuase many companies are interested in seeing how you interact with others. A great way to answer a questions is to use the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Results) method as denoted in the “The Interview Process” CDC handout. By using this format you can accurately portray your experiences and hopefully land the job! For those of you still looking for an internship, there is a program happening tonight at 6pm to help students find a summer internship.
