Practice Interviews

What Is A Practice Interview?

Practice interviews are one of the best ways to prepare for an interview. At the Career Center, you'll actually interview with a Career Center staff member who will ask you questions you are likely to hear from the company or organization with which you want to interview. At the end of the interview you both will review a video recording of the interview with the staff member, and you'll go over your strengths and weaknesses during your interview.

How Do I Set Up A Practice Interview?

You can schedule a practice interview appointment with a career counselor on the Tunnel or by calling our office at x4293. The process usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour. The following information will need to be submitted at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment to the reception desk at the Career Center:

  • details about the position/program to which you are applying
  • an overview of the organization
  • your resume/cover letter

If you do not have a particular position or program in mind, please submit information for a "hypothetical" situation of interest to you.

What Do I Get Out Of It?

  • Preparation for likely questions
  • Confidence
  • Stronger interviewing skills to increase your chance of getting a job
