The Eagle Expert Network
Carroll School Sophomores:
As part of our Carroll School Sophomore Accelerator Program, we want to ensure that you get the most out of your experience and are prepared to be active and effective members of the business community after graduation. In effort to support this goal, we have created the Eagle Expert Network and require you to take part in both an informational interview and a mock interview with a Boston College alum or employer.
Carroll School Alumni:
Our Carroll School Sophomore Accelerator Program is a one-credit, comprehensive, career preparation course offered in both the fall and spring semesters. Two requirements of this course include an informational interview and a mock interview with an alum or employer.
For the informational interview, we are looking for alumni, Eagle Experts, who have graduated within the last five years to conduct an in-person interview at their company, on-campus, or over the phone. This interview provides students with the opportunity to learn about a specific field while simultaneously introducing them to the concept and importance of networking with BC alumni.
For the mock interview, we are looking for alumni/employers who conduct interviews regularly to interview a student via video call. The general set up for the interviews will include 30 minutes for the interview and 15 minutes for feedback. Additionally, we ask that all interviewers submit an evaluation form on the interviewee. This evaluation will be required for the student to receive credit.
Our goal is to engage our Eagle Experts to create a network of alumni and employers from various industries to provide students with a unique chance to learn about the opportunities after BC and to provide alumni and employers with a connection to mentor students as they contemplate their career paths. We hope you will consider participating!
