Interviewing can be scary, foreign and uncomfortable. See here. The best way to get ready for an interview is to practice! Research is great, looking at potential questions can also be helpful, but the only way to really gain confidence for an interview is to practice!
We have a new event coming on February 16th from 3:30 – 5:30. Speed Mock Interviewing! Located in AAC Special Events Room. This is a drop in style event so come whenever is best for you.
This event will break down the barriers of a scary interview.
We will have employers on campus to facilitate the interviews. The interviews will be only 15 minutes long, about 4-6 questions. You are allowed to practice as much as you would like. If you can only make it for 1 interview between classes, no worries! If you can stay for an hour and interview with multiple people, PERFECT!
How does it work?
Career Center staff will prep you with some general tips prior to the interview, you will then walk to an interviewer and be asked some common interview questions, after that it is up to you. You can move to the next table (think speed dating) for more practice or feel free to leave whenever! It is up to you!
This will be a fun and casual event (professional dress optional) Come as you are!
