Preparing for the Modern-Day Job Interview is Topic for Upcoming MCCC Lecture Oct. 9


WEST WINDSOR – How to prepare mentally and verbally for any job interview while keeping your anxiety in check is the lecture topic at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) on Oct. 9.

The effective and useful communication strategies for a job interview will be included in the lecture “Games People Play: The Modern Day Job Interview,” presented by Kathi Paluscio, MCCC Professor of Communication. Her talk, part of MCCC’s fall Distinguished Lecture series, will take place on Oct. 9 at noon in the Communications Building, Room CM110. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Paluscio’s presentation will be a refreshing comedic lecture, including ways to strengthen the approach towards interviews while staying honest and professional. Paluscio will include slightly interactive segments, tailored to those at any stage in their career.

Paluscio earned her bachelor’s degree in Speech, Theater, and Media from Kean University, and her master’s degree in Theater from Villanova University. Paluscio has taught communication courses and workshops at both Rider and Kean universities, and also works with numerous Mercer County organizations as an interview trainer.

In 2001 Paluscio began working full time at MCCC, teaching a public speaking course. She was presented MCCC’s 2012 Distinguished Teaching Award, and has also been awarded The Human Relations Award and the Student Activities' Women of the Year Award at MCCC.
