In-person mock interview.

Mock interviews are one-on-one interview sessions designed to simulate a "real" interview. All mock interviews in the Spring 2021 semester will be conducted through Zoom. 
To schedule a mock-interview, please register here first then call the Career Development Center at 453-2391 to schedule an interview time.
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. 
  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.
