Photo of a career adviser conducting an exit interview with a student.Exit interview requirements apply to all students registered through Career Services for a field-related work experience, in CPE 0910, CPE 0920, and LA 3000.

Students complete exit interviews during the last two weeks of the term in which they are working.

During the Exit Interview, you will process your experience with your Career Services adviser.  Be ready to reflect on:

  • What you did
  • What you learned
  • How the work related to your academic study
  • What new expectations and goals you have for your academic study and career path

Things to Bring to the Exit Interview

Bring Required Documents to the Exit Interview

Bring a typed job summary, one page minimum, detailing the job duties, responsibilities, experiences, learning, and relation to your course of study.

Career Services requires a performance evaluation from your direct supervisor.  You can facilitate the evaluation process by alerting the supervisor to watch their email for an evaluation request from Career Services.  Performance evaluations are submitted electronically by the supervisor.

Complete Forms for Next Term

If you will be continuing to work for the same employer in the upcoming term, download and complete the appropriate form and bring it with you to the Exit Interview.  You will need to know contact information for your employer, plus details about your job.

To register for the upcomding term, you must meet eligibility requirements, including maintaining a qualifying GPA.

Provide a Testimonial

Are you are willing to share an online testimonial about your co-op experience with other students? 

  1. If working in a job with security considerations, seek approval from your employer before sending potentially sensitive images or information.
  2. Take a picture of yourself at your work station or outside your facility
  3. Use our Submit Your Story form to send us your photo and your story

Additional Information for Liberal Arts Learning Contracts

If the project assigned by the faculty mentor involves written documentation of the work experience, bring a copy of that documentation to turn in at the exit interview. 

If the project assigned by the faculty mentor is not written documentation, then complete a type-written job summary, one page minimum, detailing the job duties, responsibilities, experiences, learning, and relation to your course of study.

In addition, students must turn in their assigned academic project and meet with their faculty mentor prior to the last day of classes.

Subsequently, the Liberal Arts Learning Contract faculty mentor will forward a grade recommendation to the Career Services adviser.
