The Alumni Leadership Council’s Career Development Committee has created a career workshop series solely from the request of our alumni. We strongly encourage you to participate in each workshop regardless of your career status. The first workshop “Career Workshop Series: Workshop 1 – Mock Interview Sessions and Resume Building” will focus on the interview process as well as the importance of a finely tuned resume.
Mock interviews are one of the very best ways to prepare for an actual employment interview. The mock interview allows you to gain experience and practice in answering questions that you are likely to be asked by a recruiter. The interviewer will try to make the interview as realistic as possible by asking questions that are typical of those that might be asked. At some point during the interview you will have the opportunity to ask questions that you would ask in an actual interview. The mock interview takes about twenty minutes; afterward you will receive pointers from your interviewer.
Resume building is as important as the mock interview process. Your resume will not be the deciding factor in whether or not you get a job offer after an interview, but your resume will get you that interview in the first place. A resume is the document that supports you before, during, and after a job interview. A strongly written resume demonstrates to an employer what you can offer to their company.
You will need to bring your most current resume with you to participate in both the mock interview and the resume building.
