Mock Interviews

Mock Interviews are designed to provide students classified as sophomores and above with the opportunity to practice interviewing with a real employer. Mock interview days/nights are scheduled once per month and registrations are limited. These interviews are intended to be practice interviews and not necessarily an opportunity to meet with a specific employer or individual. Each session will last approximately 30 minutes, with the first 15-20 being the 'interview' and the final 10-15 minutes spent evaluating your performance. 

You MUST have completed a one-on-one resume review with one of our staff members during the current semester to sign up for an interview time slot. Sign up for an appointment in Handshake.

The deadline to sign up for a mock interview is 5:00 p.m. two business days prior to the interview date, in order to allow our volunteer employers ample time to prepare. Each student may only sign up on one schedule per mock interview night in order to allow others the opportunity to participate.

Your preparation prior to attending a mock interview should be similar to that of a real interview. At a minimum, we expect that you will research the organization with whom you are interviewing and go through our interviewing workshop. To get maximum benefit from this experience, treat it as a 'real' interview.
