Students are encouraged to make a one-hour appointment with a member of the Career Center staff for a mock interview. A mock interview is simply a practice interview to gain interview experience and to get an honest critique before venturing into a real-life interview.
Students should bring a copy of their resume by the Career Center 48 HOURS PRIOR TO the scheduled mock interview. Students should also come dressed and prepared as if for an actual interview. Staff members treat the interview just as a company recruiter would. Following the interview, the staff member will critique the student’s performance and offer helpful suggestions for improvement for future interviews.
Career Center Interview Suites
Students have the opportunity to reserve one of our interview suites to use for any virtual interviews they may have. These rooms are a quiet place with excellent internet where a student can fully focus on their interview without distractions.
NOTE: You must wear a mask and follow all other COVID-19 Procedures when coming into the Career Center. When a single student reserves an interview space, they can remove their mask once they are in that space. Once a student completes the interview, they must put their mask back on before exiting the room.
Several of our online services and Career Center Library materials provide helpful advice on interviewing. The online advice can be accessed through Handshake and the additional resources link. Look for the Vault Career Library.
