Mock Interviewing

With Career Fair season in full swing, that means that interviews will not be far behind. Interviewing is an essential skill for any prospective employee or graduate student and the Career Center can assist with your prep work. The Career Center can provide a practice scenario for almost any scenario, and best of all the service is free. Mock Interviewing is also a great resource for Freshmen and Sophomore students as they begin to interview for Freshmen Leadership Programs and leadership roles within their student organizations. To schedule a mock interview with one of our trained staff you can call 334.844.4744, or if you've been into the Career Center before schedule it through Handshake in the "Appointment" tab.
