Mock interviews

The Mock Interview program allows undergraduate students and alumni to practice interview skills and receive constructive feedback in a safe, supportive environment. These may be in preparation to interview for internships, jobs, and admissions to professional programs or graduate schools. Mock interviews are a dress rehearsal for an actual interview. The first 20–30 minutes will be a simulated interview experience, and the remaining 20–30 minutes will be dedicated to feedback and coaching.

Mock interviews can be conducted in person, or virtually, to suit your needs.
