Mock Interview Day

Students can participate in an hour long mock interview and career planning session where you will leave with goals and objectives for your career plan and feedback on your interviewing skills. Students at the end of each mock interview will understand what types of questions employers ask during an interview and how to articulate their skills in an interview setting.


If you want the Career Center to focus your interview on admission to a specific graduate program, please send that information to career.center@gcsu.edu at least 3 business days prior to your interview so that we can prepare.

We recommend that all interviewees come to their interview with a type of job in mind so that you have a context to use for your answers.


Any major or year may participate. To sign up, upload your resume to Career Connection and then go to Campus Interview Schedules to select a time.

These mock interviews can also help you fulfill requirements for Career Boost, GEM, LCP, and some class assignments if your professor has required a mock interview.


Instructions for Signing Up:

  1. Upload your resume to Career Connection
  2. Access the Campus Interview Schedule on Career Connection
  3. Select an interview time
