Mock interviews with career advisor

  • A mock interview can help you practice your interview skills. A career advisor will serve as the interviewer and provide tips to help you perfect your skills.
  • At least 24 hours before your appointment, provide the career advisor with your resume and a description of the job and company or school you would like to use as your interview model.
  • Prepare as you would for an actual interview. Practice typical interview questions.
  • Research the organization/school with which you will be “interviewing” and bring along a list of questions you would ask the interviewer.
  • If possible, dress as if you were actually interviewing.
  • Don’t forget to arrive a little early as you would for a real interview.
