Interview Preparation and Mock Interviews
What is a mock interview?
The purpose of a mock interview is to provide you with an opportunity to practice the interview and get direct experience responding to specific questions about what you want to do, and why, and how your background has prepared you for the position
|What is involved in a mock interview and how to schedule one?|
Make an appointment to practice your interviewing techniques and receive feedback from a career counselor. Each appointment includes a 30 minute interview and about 20 minutes of feedback. The goal of a mock interview is to refine both the content and presentation of answers in preparing for a real interview situation. The counselor will not provide you with "right answers" or rigid ideas about presentation. Instead, the counselor will help guide you to develop answers and a style that you are comfortable using. To schedule an appointment for a mock interview please fill out the Mock Interview Request Form and submit it to the Career Center with a current copy of your resume.
In order to view the request form, you must have the Adobe® Acrobat® Reader installed on your computer. The reader is free and can be downloaded from the Adobe® Web site.
