Overview

Mock interviews are a great way for students to practice their interview skills with an experienced professional.

Mock Interviews are conducted in the fall (September – December); and the spring (February – April). Each interview will last 30 minutes, with 20 minutes for the actual interview and the remaining time spent providing feedback and answering student questions.
