Students and Employers Mock Interview Day, Jan. 25
On Wednesday, January 25, held in the Kelley Center, 23 local employers will participate in this year’s Mock Interview Day as students from all majors practice their interview skills and gain real time feedback from professionals. Companies such as Epsilon, BDO, Octagon and BlumShapiro will help students hone their abilities and prepare to enter the workforce.
Mock Interview Day, offered by the Academic and Career Development Center and the Dolan School of Business (DSB), is an opportunity for students to sit face-to-face with a professional in their field and conduct an interview as if it were the real thing. Interviews will be timed and at the conclusion, students will receive real time feedback on their performance, and the professionals will offer pointers to develop the students' skills and confidence. Students may sign up for these interviews with the company of their choice through their Stags4Hire accounts. Mock Interview Day is sponsored by Bank of America.
“I'm interested in mock interviews because it's an effective way for students to interact with their future managers and employers. Being able to properly interview, as well as successfully connect, is one of the vital attributes that matters across many industries," said Anthony Szymonik '18, a junior studying marketing with the DSB.
