Thank you for your interest in serving WT Students!

Mock Interviews are offered year round and benefit both the student and employer/volunteer. Students are able to gain valuable feedback and insight into the interview process, while employers have the opportunity to give back to the WT community, meet terrific students, and share their interviewing expertise.

Mock interview sessions are 2 hours long with each interview lasting 30 minutes, so each employer/volunteer will potentially meet with 4 different students. During Fall 2021 we will offer both in-person and Zoom interview options. 

Thank you for agreeing to help with our mock interviews. To prepare, we encourage you to check out the information below about the process.

If you have not heard about the program before, but are interested in participating, please fill out this survey and we will contact you about the process to participate.

 

Scheduling Process

We will create a schedule in Handshake with your name, title and company name where students can sign up for a specific timeslot with you. Closer to the actual mock interview, we will you send you your schedule, along with the resumes of the students who have signed up with you. After the deadline for students to sign up, we will send you an updated copy of your schedule and the corresponding resumes if there are additions or changes.

Questions to ask

Feel free to ask questions that are normally used by your organization in a screening interview. If you'd prefer, click the button below for some recommended behavioral interviewing questions with expected outcomes you can use. Just an FYI: Students are not interviewing for a particular role, but they are expected to have done a little research on you/your organization and should be ready to ask you a question or two when prompted. 

Suggestions on how to use the 30 minutes allotted for each interview: we find that most employers use the first 15-20 minutes of each time slot to actually conduct the interview, then the final 10-15 minutes to provide verbal feedback and answer any questions the student may have for them.

Written Feedback

The feedback form has also gone virtual. Please complete it at

Your feedback is essential to the success of this program! In addition to the verbal feedback you provide directly to the student, we ask that you provide written comments when possible along with assigning a numerical score. Also, please submit this feedback the day/evening of the interview. Many of our students are working with class deadlines, so it is important to us (and them) to get your feedback promptly.

In Person and Zoom
Location

For Zoom (Fall/Spring, exclusively Zoom from 3-5 PM and some from 5:30-7:30): The day of the mock interview, you will receive a calendar invite that will have the meeting link along with additional information including helpful phone numbers. In order to get you "checked in" and ready to go, please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to your first interview This should give us time to iron out any kinks before you are scheduled to begin. One tip: If you get kicked out of Zoom … just rejoin the meeting by clicking on the link.

For In Person: The link below will take you to view a campus map, as well as see where guest parking is available. Please plan to arrive on campus about 30 minutes before your first interview to allow for traffic as well as time to park and walk to our office. We are located in Classroom Center 113, and upon arrival, we will provide you with printed copies of your student resumes, the feedback form, and the sample questions.
