Conduct mock or informational interviews

The office conducts mock interviews to help students prepare for upcoming interviews or complete class assignments. Occasionally, volunteers are needed to assist with special Mock Interview Days.

Informational interviews give students the opportunity to meet with an employer who works in an industry in which they are interested. These can take place at the employer's place of work, offsite (e.g. at a coffee shop), over the phone, via Skype, or through other communication channels.

The time commitment for mock or informational interviews ranges from one hour for one interview to a half or full day for special events.

Propose a workshop or presentation

Do you have expertise in an area that would be beneficial to share with students?  Contact our office and propose a workshop or presentation!  These are often held in the early evening, but can also take place during regular business hours.

Invite students to visit your organization

Students appreciate seeing potential locations to intern, volunteer, or work. Inviting them to your workplace is a great way to build relationships and network. Contact our office if you’d like to arrange a time for students to see the great things happening at your organization!
