2012 CIE/USA-DFW Fall Leadership Assessment and Mentoring Program (LAMP)


The 2013 CIE Leadership Assessment and Mentoring Program (LAMP) will be held at the Hoblitzelle Hall Auditorium, HH 2.402 of University of Texas at Dallas at 1:30pm to 5:00pm on Saturday, April 20, 2013. The event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to attend. This event is especially designed for graduating university students and young professionals who desire to enhance their knowledge and hand-on experience on hiring process, career development, corporate culture, and leadership.

The event will feature the keynote speech by Mark Carpenter, SVP of Oncor Electric Delivery, followed by a “Live Job Interview” with panel discussions.

In order to go on stage and participate in the Live Job Interview, you will need to submit your resume. We will invite instructors from UTD Career Center to feedback the resumes and provide training session for all applicants. Certain candidates will be further invited to perform live on-stage mock interview to interact directly with high-profile panelists from leading companies, such as Texas Instruments, Oncor, AT&T, Huawei, Caterpillar, Sabre Holdings, McGladrey and Yellowbox Solutions. The panelists will conduct mock interview for assumed positions in business, engineering and science. Furthermore, the panelists will discuss the “hits and misses” of each candidate’s interview performance and provide with targeted, well-crafted feedback and interview tips.

If you are interested to participate as one of the mock interview candidate, please submit your resume to lamp.cie@gmail.com by April 11, 2013 (Thursday). We will notify you if you are selected as one of the candidates.
