As part of the ATC 320 Athletic Training Administration class, 4th year Missouri State University athletic training students participated in mock interviews yesterday. Instructor for the course, Dr. Tona Hetzler, explains that in the past, groups really gained a great deal of knowledge and appreciated the feedback from this process.
To prepare for their interview, students were required to draft a cover letter and make updates to their resume. In addition, they were asked to provide a copy of an actual current job listing they were interested in applying for.
SMAT faculty, staff, participated as interviewers for the students. In addition, several Preceptors and AT graduate students assisted with this activity through participation as an interviewer.
The SMAT department is proud to assist in preparing this group of students for post-graduation, “real world” challenges the students will soon face!
