BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Western Kentucky University The Gordon Ford College of Business is working with students this week to prepare them for life after graduation.
Students who chose to participate were able to simulate interviews for future jobs and learn what is expected and desired during an interview.
A photographer also took to campus and helped the students take portraits for their Linked In profiles or any other object they might need a portrait for.
Monica Duvall, Director of Student Success, said they started the initiative after local businesses told the school that WKU students should work on professionalism when entering the workforce. .
âWe are really strategic in the different professionals that we bring, the different topics that we present on, to make sure our students fully understand how to be successful and what it takes to make sure they have that professionalism skills to find and land that job after graduation, âsaid Duvall.
The school also has a professional cloakroom where students can pick up a set of professional clothing free of charge.
This allows students who cannot easily afford expensive costumes and dresses to have an outfit to wear for interviews.
