Prep For Your Real Interview By First Taking A FREE Mock Interview

If you’re the type of person who values having a safe space to practice in before the real thing then you should take advantage of the FREE mock interviews offered by the University Career Center.

It’s typically better to work out your nerves and see how you perform prior to when it matters most.

During a mock interview you'll go through a practice interview with someone who will play the role of the interviewer.

Afterwards you'll get feedback on how you did ⏤ including what you did well and any areas that you can improve upon.

You'll also get tips & insights on the 'why' behind the questions being asked.

When you understand why you're being asked certain questions you'll have a much better chance of answering in a way that helps you stand out from others while also providing the interviewer with the information that they're looking for.

For example, 'Tell me about a weakness' has less to do with an actual weakness and more to do with you having self-awareness and having done something to overcome / mitigate that weakness.

And it doesn’t matter if you’re a freshman or a senior. As long as you're a current student, you can schedule an appointment for a mock interview and receive in-person feedback.

So use it. That way you’ll know what to fix, be better prepared, and feel a heck of a lot more confident when it comes time to make the case to a recruiter as to why they should hire you.
