Each mock interview is scheduled for approximately 30 minutes: 15-20 minutes for the mock interview and 10-15 minutes for feedback on the student’s resume and interview techniques.

Mock interview appointments will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis by sending an email to You may sign up for as many interviews as your schedule permits.  Currently available interview times.

This is a great way to practice your interview skills and receive feedback about your resume before it counts later this semester or next fall during the On-Campus Recruitment Program.

The interviewer will be provided a copy of your resume prior to your mock interview, so please be sure to update your resume in preparation for this program. Information about legal resumes, including sample resumes, can be found in the CSO Handbook (available in the Career Resources section).
