Hofstra Recognized as a Top School for Veterans

As we have reported before, Hofstra and the Zarb School are involved in efforts to aid veterans of the U.S. Military.

Recently, as reported by MetroMBA:

“Hofstra University has been named to the 2015 Military Friendly School List. This list includes the top 15 percent of colleges and universities that do the most to embrace members of the military, veterans, and their spouses. This is the second consecutive year Hofstra has made the list. The 2015 list of Military Friendly Schools ®, was compiled by Victory Media Inc. The list is created from a data-driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide that have been approved for post-9/11 GI Bill funding. The survey scores institutions in several categories, including military support on campus, veteran graduation rates, program flexibility for military students, and military spouse policies.”

U.S News & World Report ranks Hofstra number 36 on its list of Best Colleges for Veterans: “These are the top-ranked schools in the 2015 Best Colleges rankings that participate in federal initiatives helping veterans and active-duty service members apply for, pay for and complete their degrees.”


 

A Low-Cost July 2015 Experience at a Hofstra Partner School in Europe

Two Hofstra professors will be teaching Legal 20 and Accounting 102 at the international summer program of Hochschule Bremen Institute of Applied Sciences, a partner school in Bremen, Germany. This program brings together over 100 students from countries around the world to Bremen, a small and historic city in northern Germany for business instruction in English. Last year, students came from such countries as Russia, India, and Mexico as well as the United States. Bremen is a lovely small city, founded by Charlemagne in 787. It is an hour from Hamburg, and is a great jumping off point for travel by train or budget airlines to other parts of Europe.

How Good Are YOU When Taking a Job Interview?

A great resume can get you in the door for a prospective job. The goal of your resume is to get you through all the filters between your application and the personal interview. Most resumes never make it past the screening stage. SO, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO BE PREPARED FOR YOUR INTERVIEW AND TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL YOUR ANXIETY LEVEL DURING THE INTERVIEW.

As Ariella Coombs writes for Careerealism:

“Interviews are tricky. In 45 minutes, you’re supposed to prove you’ve got the qualifications, skills, and attitude to win the job. And on top of all of that, you have to fit in with the team. No pressure! Some job candidates love the thrill of interviews – bring it on! Others dread the thought of them – ugh, I hate this part.”

Here’s an interview quiz from Careerealism. See how YOU do. You should answer ALL questions correctly. They are not hard. Be ready when the time comes for a job interview.
