MOCK INTERVIEW INFORMATION

What is a mock interview? A practice interview with a career counselor that will help you prepare for an actual employment interview. The focus of the interview is to practice and articulate your skills/strengths and past experiences. Overall, the mock interview is a safe place for you to practice your interview skills and gain feedback.

Benefits of a mock interview:

  • Allows you to reflect on your skill set, experiences/accomplishments, and industry knowledge as it relates to the job you are interested in
  • Role play the interview process and gain valuable on-the-spot feedback on all aspects of the interview process
  • Gain awareness of verbal and non-verbal cues that could be beneficial or damaging in the interview
