AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Students at a South Georgia University are working together to make it into the workforce.

Nursing students at Georgia Southwestern asked business students to help them prepare for their job searches.

Human Resource students held mock interviews on-campus and through video conferencing to help graduating nursing seniors.

HR students also helped improve resumes and cover letters.

Deans from both schools say it helps students on each side.

 "It's crucial. You can have the best skills in the world but if you can't communicate and you can't sell yourself, you're not going to get the job," said Dean of the Business Liz Wilson.

"They came back saying they didn't realize this, They asked questions I wasn't prepared for. Some were prepared but for most of them, it was an eye opening experience for them," said Dean of the Nursing School Liz Kelly.

GSW officials are looking to get more schools within the university to collaborate.
