Mock Interviews I
A mock interview is an excellent way to prepare for an actual job interview. You will be asked questions for about 15 minutes. Your conversation will be recorded via webcam. At the end of the interview, you and the interviewer will review your conversation and discuss your strengths and any areas that need improvement. This process sounds painful, it is not, in fact the majority of students find the mock interview to be very helpful!
How to prepare for your Mock Interview:
- Prepare your resume ~ A very important part of your interview. If starting from scratch, check out the samples on our website.
- Dress for success ~ Come dressed as if you were going to a real interview. If you don’t know what to wear, call or come by and see us. We offer a Dress for Success Closet along with advice.
- Read up on Interview Preparation ~ Lots of helpful information can be found in the Job Search Guide (pick up a copy in Whitlock Building 468) or under Inside Look.
