What ways are there to improve the chance of receiving a scholarship to pay for school?

One of my tops schools has a high priced tuition. The most likely way I would be able to go to that school is if I earn one of their scholarships such as their Presidential Scholarship. It requires an essay and then a half an hour interview in January so I was wondering if there was any way I...

What are some common mistakes you see job seekers make when interviewing for a role at your company?

I am preparing for interviews for internships so I thought I'd ask what common (or not so common) mistakes young people make when interviewing at your company so that I can avoid making those mistakes when I start interviewing at companies I want to work for! Thank you! #human-resources...

How do I prepare for a long-distance interview?

I've recently started the job/internship-searching process. It seems that, as a college student, many interviews you'll have are over the phone or via Skype. Many of us students have others in our dorm/suite, and the door swinging open and college-vernacular being hollered for just a few...

Can cultural matching be a form of racism?

In a Anthropology type class I took at my school, I learned that sometimes employers will find interest in a candidate if they share something with that employer-cultural matching. Since I go to a community college, I've always felt it doesn't look good on my resume because the stigmas behind...

Hello, I am a senior this year and heading to a 4-year in the fall. I have been extremely busy this year as I am in 3 AP's this year and participate in 3 sports. So a job has never really been an option for me, because employers do not seem to be really willing to work with my hours despite...

When applying for entry level jobs while still in college/ recent graduate, do employers care about GPA?

I work really hard and have a 4.0 GPA in college as a full time student, some kids that I talk to say that GPA doesn't matter in the real world. I am asking a professional, does a high GPA show for an excellent work ethic and intelligence? #management #resume #interviews #college-jobs #hiring...
