Mock Interview Workshop
This event will allow our supporters to have dedicated one-on-one time with students who would be interested in seeking internships or full-time positions. The interviewer would be responsible for giving valuable feedback about the interview, the candidate’s resume, and general advice about the interview process. The workshop will occur before EXPO and grants you the perfect opportunity to interact with members while you are already in Austin.
As the first event of the Manitos & Manitas program, the Kick-Off prepares mentors and mentees for their roles. For the first part of the event, students are informed about the structure of the program and how it will develop both the mentors and the mentees. Their roles and responsibilities are explained, as well as the benefits of being part of the program. Corporate supporters can offer their wisdom on mentorship. At the end of the event, the students are told who their “Big” or their “Little” is and are able to get to know them one-on-one.
SHPE Corporate Tours are informal guided tours of local engineering firms in the Austin area. By taking a look at what engineers do in the workplace, members will gain valuable insight about industry and learn about the possible career paths once they graduate. Corporate supporters will get the opportunity to network with students in a small environment. This is an awesome opportunity for companies to show SHPE members what their company’s culture is like and what they do on a daily basis.

This is also a comfortable environment where both students and professionals can discuss common obstacles and how to overcome them, as well as how to lead confidently.
