The University Career Center's practice interview program is a safe place to practice interview skills, gain confidence and receive interview feedback from an experienced hiring professional. Guest employers volunteer their time to interview students and provide them with immediate feedback on their interviewing skills. Interviews are 30 minutes in length: 20 minutes for the interview and 10 minutes for immediate feedback from the interviewer. Students will not be interviewing for a specific position but should be prepared to respond to general behavior interview questions. You DO NOT have to have specific interest in the organization in order to participate--the goal is to get practice interviewing.

 

Why Sign-up for a Practice Interview?


Knowing what to expect and how to prepare will lead to successful future interviews. Success begins with preparation.
You will receive immediate interview feedback from our guest employer and professional hiring manager.
Practice makes better! Get a jump start on your job search, boost your interview skills and increase your chances for a successful interview the next time you're in front of an employer.
