Interviews are an integral part of the hiring process for any type of organization. Potential employers use interviews as a means to learn who you are as a prospective employee.
Mock interviews are one of the best ways to prepare for an actual employee interview, allowing you to gain the opportunity, experience and confidence to answer questions similar to ones that may be asked during your real interview.
Your Employment Counselor will take on the role of the interview and try to make the interview as realistic as possible by asking questions that are commonly asked for the type of job you are seeking. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to ask questions in return that you may want to ask during an actual interview.
Mock interviews generally take up to twenty minutes. Once completed, your employment counselor will discuss and critique your performance, giving you tips on what can be improved upon if necessary. While the length of mock interviews varies by student, please allow one hour for the appointment.
