Sweats to Suits

We host our Sweats to Suits mock interview and networking events each semester. Upperclassmen are afforded the opportunity to be interviewed and critiqued by CEO's, business executives, and community leaders. This allows students to hone their interviewing skills in a real world environment while networking with prospective employers.
