Mock Interviews

Improve your interviewing confidence and ability to make a positive impression with an employer by scheduling a mock interview. To make your mock interview as realistic as possible, the Arts and Sciences Career Services Office requires you to provide the key information outlined below; this allows our mock interviewers to prepare questions unique to your interview situation.

Please Note: The Arts and Sciences Career Services Office specializes in mock interviews for students and recent bachelor's degree recipients who are searching for internships or full-time career related employment. If you would like to practice for professional school or graduate school interviews (e.g. medical school, dental school, optometry school), please contact Student Life Career Counseling and Support Services.
