If you schedule an appointment with Dr. Higgins (or an OITE Career Counselor or Dr. Sokolove or Dr. Milgram), be certain to prepare in advance. This is true whether you would like to discuss a personal statement or experience a mock interview. If you cannot attend a workshop on the topic in person, then watch the videocast of an earlier workshop on the topic. If you wish to discuss a personal statement, write and edit it carefully prior to the appointment. If you have scheduled a mock interview, practice examples of possible responses in advance.
