Interviewing and Networking
Interviews are typically required during the job search process, and it is vital that you plan and prepare for this important conversation. Employers expect candidates to have researched their company and to describe why they would be a good fit "in this position" and "at this firm." This may sound easy on the surface, but describing your own experiences can be difficult, and marketing yourself with confidence is even harder.
Mock interviews: You are encouraged to schedule a mock interview with our office. Tell your career advisor what types of positions or companies you are targeting, and your advisor will ask interview questions appropriate to that industry. After the mock interview, you and your advisor will work together to constructively critique your performance. This is a great way to get some feedback and practice your interviewing skills before it counts.
We occasionally bring employers to campus as part of the mock interview program, allowing you to further practice your interviewing skills with these industry professionals. Call (401) 341-2913 for more information and to schedule a mock interview.
