On April 10thTouro College Graduate School of Technology held a Career Night designed to give both matriculated students and Touro College alumni the tools necessary to navigate New York’s competitive career market. The best and brightest minds of Touro College came together in a collaborative spirit to provide a media-rich educational experience that teaches students proper interview etiquette.
Career Night consisted of two videos: “Get Hired Interview” and “Never Get Hired Interview.” True to their names, each video displays a sample interview during which a prospective job candidate either successfully or unsuccessfully completes the interview.
“Never Get Hired Interview” enacts poor behaviors commonly seen during interviews, such as arriving late, wearing improper attire, and not carrying a resume, helping students to identify said improper behaviors and avoid them in the future. “Get Hired Interview” showcases the ideal interview in the hopes that students will emulate these actions in their own interview processes.
The filming took place on March 28th at 27 West 23rd Street, Room 339, New York, NY. The staff involved in the filming of the interview videos was a mixed group of graduate school faculty and students, with credits including:
- Jesse Epstein – Web & Multimedia Design Program ChairFilmed the interviews and edited the video for viewing.
- Oksana Saulenko – Current Student in Web & Multimedia Design Program

- Robert Grosberg – Director of Career Services

Career Night was a fantastically successful evening, thanks to the teamwork of the Touro College Graduate School of Technology professors, Web & Multimedia Design graduate students, and the willing audience who asked fantastic questions following the screening of the two interview films.
In keeping with the college’s dedication to superior education in the technology and multimedia industries, Touro College made a profound difference in the career prospects of all participating students that evening.
