Two Types of Mock Interviews: Practice with a Counselor (2/21) or Practice with an Employer (2/27)!

From time to time, we all need to practice.  If you want to practice your interviewing skills with either a career counselor or an employer, make sure you sign up!

Use this link to select a time for a practice interview with our career counseling staff.  Available time slots are from 9-4pm (with the exception of the lunch hour).  This day is for students and alumni who want practice with staff before they practice with an employer!  If you are still a bit nervous, then this might be the better day.
