Mock Interview Day

As part of ORI 300, a Career Readiness course, registered students participate in a mock interview day. During this event, students in the class are interviewed by an employer for about 30 minutes. At the end of the interview, students receive feedback on their performance and are given tips to improve. Mock interviews allow students to practice interviewing and receive feedback from professionals in a more informal way in order to prepare for a real interview.
