Interview

Interviewing: Professional Perspective

 

In October 2011, CNM’s Job Connection Services filmed interviews with employer representatives from a variety of local businesses.  These individuals volunteered their time to help CNM students and graduates understand what is important when interviewing for a job.  We now have the finished product and are very pleased with the quality.  We’re eager to share this with the CNM community and to invite you to take a look.

If you want to know what employers are looking for in a strong candidate, you’ll find the answers here.

You can watch complete interviews for each individual here and/or click on links below for specific questions and answers.
