Our Mock Interview Program is designed to assist you in preparing for an interview that you may have with an employer or a graduate school. We offer both face to face and telephone mock interviews. All mock interviews are 30 minutes in length, whether in person, over the phone, or via Skype. The 30 minute time slot also includes time for feedback related to the mock interview.
PLEASE NOTE: We can not accommodate same day requests. Please allow at least TWO business days for confirmation of your appointment. When you submit the Mock Interview request form, you will identify blocks of time that you are available. Our staff will follow up to confirm a specific appointment time. Additionally, we will not be offering mock interviews during Finals Week each semester. Please plan accordingly.
Faculty members interested in requiring Mock Interviews as part of a course assignment should contact Jodi Pavol, Assistant Director for Outreach, to arrange a schedule.
InterviewStream is a web-based mock interview program to assist students with their basic interviewing skills. Students must have a webcam. Visit the web site to create an account and create your customized interveiw. Please do NOT use an academic mock interview unless you are enrolled in that class.
Interviewing provides you with an opportunity to match your skills, education and experience to a specific organization and position. Your goal is to demonstrate that you are the best candidate for that position. It is important to remember that interviewing is a two way street. You want to make sure the organization will be a good fit for your personality and professional goals.
What you do to prepare yourself before an interview is just as, if not more, important as the actual interview.
Here are the main steps in preparing for an interview:
1. Know yourself – Past experiences, professional goals, transferable skills, favorite work environment
2. Research the field & organization
