What Are Mock Interviews?
To develop a confident interview style, you may wish to practice in a "risk-free" atmosphere. A mock interview in the Career and Internship Center serves to help you recognize areas in which you excel as well as areas of improvement that would enhance your interview style.
All appointments are videotaped. After a 10-15 minute interview, you and your mock interviewer will review the tape and discuss your performance. You will receive a suggestion form after your interview with notes on potential strategies for improvement. The entire appointment typically lasts 45 minutes to 1 hour.
It is a good idea to prepare for your mock interview in advance. Reading literature on interview techniques and reviewing potential questions will be helpful.
To schedule a mock interview
- Contact the Career and Internship Center Office identifying your career interest or position for which you are applying.
- Bring a résumé to the interview.
- Dress and groom as you will for the actual interview - we will provide feedback to assure you of the right look.
- If you would like to keep a videotape of your mock interview, bring a tape.
We look forward to working with you!
