Mock Interviews

Practice Your Interviewing Skills with a Mock Interview

The Fleishman Center offers practice mock interviews throughout the academic year. These mock interviews are a great way to prepare for an actual upcoming employment or internship interview, sharpen your interview skills before you have interviews scheduled, and get feedback to improve upon your interviewing skills.

Details:

When: Mock interviews are available weekly during the academic year.

Length: Each interview is approximately 30 minutes in length, with 15-20 minutes for the interview, and 10 minutes for the feedback process.

Location: The interviews take place in the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development's Interview Rooms or offices (UU-133). Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled Practice Mock Interview.

Eligibility: Mock interviews are open to all matriculated undergraduate and graduate students and Alumni who have graduated within the last six months. Due to high demand for the Practice Mock Interview Program, students are limited to a maximum of three practice mock interviews each semester.
