Handshakes matter. So does eye contact. So does body language. Historically there have not been courses that teach these non-academic workplace necessities. The University of South Alabama’s Mitchell College of Business is changing that through their PREP program. Everything from how to answer “what’s your five year plan,” to how to structure a resume, to how to introduce yourself during your “elevator commercial.” Meet Megan Bennett and Jay Hunt, both of the Mitchell College of Business, and hear how interviews are changing, how companies are finding candidates is changing, and how Megan, Jay and their team are keeping their students up with the trends shaping today’s workplace and today’s job candidates.
