Mock Interviews

Mock interviews are one-on-one interview sessions designed to simulate a "real" interview. Students and Alumni can choose to either have their mock interview in-person or virtual, but some professors do prefer one method over the other.
To schedule a mock interview:

  1. Complete a virtual interview using Big Interview
  2. Complete the online registration here
  3. Call the Career Development Center at 453-2391 to schedule an interview time
  4. Come prepared and ready to learn.


Here are some things you should know:

  1. Professional attire is recommended. Note: Unprofessional dress results in the loss of points on your evaluation.
  2. Double-check your webcam's audio and video before entering the Zoom interview. (If Applicable)
  3. Enter the Zoom meeting five minutes before your scheduled interview. Late arrivals will be asked to reschedule and must write a letter of apology to their interviewer. 
NOTE: All mock interviews conducted as a course assignment MUST be completed by the last Friday of the semester. There will be no mock interviews conducted during finals week. Please plan accordingly.
