Wednesday, October 18, 2017
9:00am - 4:00pm
Stotler Lounge (Memorial Union)
University of Missouri Columbia
The Personal Financial Planning Department will hold an Interview Session on Wednesday, October 18th from 9am-4pm in Stotler Lounge (Memorial Union) on the University of Missouri campus. This event is different than traditional career fairs, as it is not a meet and greet event where students walk around to various tables. At this event students sign up with Dr. Ivey in order to schedule an appointment time with employers to either interview for current employment opportunities or ask prospective employers questions to learn more about their organization, or have a mock interview conducted.Learn more
