Engineering students at SUNY Broome Community College will be preparing for job interviews as part of a program to help make them "career ready."

Dozens of students this month will have an opportunity to meet with representatives of local employers for practice interviews.

Laura Knochen-Davis, who coordinates the Perkins Career and Technical Education program at SUNY Broome, says the program is designed to prepare students to land good jobs in this area.

Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Knochen-Davis said it's a year-long grant-funded initiative.

Several sessions offering mock interview experiences will be available to engineering students this week and next.

Criminal justice students will be able to participate next month in mock interviews with employers in their field.

Knochen-Davis said the program is working to help make students ready to meet the specific needs of area employers.
