"I am so thankful for the experience of being at Mini. It was so helpful to have a feedback about my CV, cover letter and teaching. Now I know what needs improvement and I have many good ideas. Also I have a much better understanding the interview process. The opportunity of practicing a live phone interview and an interview with a real Dean clarified so many things for me. Mini was an intense learning experience and it will certainly be very useful in the future!"  Henrique Segala Villela, Brasil – San Diego State U
