ASC Career Success: Mock Interviews

Although the semester is winding down, there is still time to prepare for upcoming interviews related to internships, part- or full-time jobs with a mock interview.

These 30-minute appointments will give you the chance to answer common interview questions and then obtain feedback from a career coach. Bring a job description with you to tailor the interview toward a specific position or practice answering general behavioral-based questions that are commonly asked during interviews.

Appointments are currently being held in-person, virtually or over the phone. If you’d like to meet with a coach in-person, email with your request for an in-person mock interview. Learn more and schedule your appointment.

Interview with a Buckeye

The Center for Career and Professional Success is bringing an exciting event for undergraduates next semester: Interview with a Buckeye!

For this event, we are bringing in College of Arts and Sciences alumni who will provide feedback about your interviewing skills, answer questions you may have about interviewing, and provide tips for resume improvement. This is an excellent opportunity to network with Arts and Sciences alumni and to learn more about how they’re using their degree in the workplace.
