Effective Interviewing

The job interview is a process where an employer determines which candidate is the right person for their organization and where the candidate must convince the employer that they have the skills, background, and ability to do the job. As a candidate, you can increase your chances of being the right person by doing thorough research on the company and by being fully prepared for the interview.

How Our Office Can Help

Our office can assist students in a variety of ways. We offer workshops on interviewing throughout the academic year. We also host mock interviews where outside company representatives come on campus to test students' interviewing skills and give them feedback. If there isn't an employer mock interview session scheduled, you can always schedule a mock interview with a member of the Career Services staff.
