Mock Interviews 2017-03-27T20:41:32+00:00

Practice is a very important part of the interview and job seeking process. Business Career Services hosts a Mock Interview Day each semester for College of Business students in 1320 Gerdin Business Building. For Mock Interview Day, industry recruiters are invited to campus to provide practice interviews for students. You will be able to sign up for an interview with an individual that recruits your specific major.

Each interview last approximately 30 minutes and includes specific feedback from the interviewer on what was done well and what could be improved. Your mock interview will be a way for you to practice; however, the interview will be much more than “just practice.” Use our Interview Guide to prepare and present yourself in the same way you would for a “real” interview.

To Sign Up for a mock interview with an industry recruiter
