Interviewing effectively is the single most important aspect of the
job search. It is your best and oftentimes only chance to demonstrate to
an employer that you have the skills and experience necessary to do the
job. Becoming comfortable with the interview process is crucial as
employers, regardless of their field, constantly seek to hire poised,
well spoken, directed individuals.
The Career Development Center's mock interview is designed to help you
prepare for your job interview by sharpening your ability to communicate
your skills and experience to the interviewer. The mock interview will
help to increase your comfort level by a practical "hands on" approach.
It is conducted in the Career Development Center by one of the career
counselors and usually takes one hour. The interview will be treated as
if it is the "real
thing." You should come to the interview dressed professionally and with
a copy of your resume. The career counselor will ask questions similar
to those one might encounter during the course of an actual job
interview. The questions will be geared toward your specific major or
area of interest. The entire process will be videotaped, played back,
and critiqued by the counselor on the spot.
Interviews will be scheduled at mutually convenient times for students
