Practice Interviewing with Industry Experts

Monday, February 19, 2018 • 12:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Location: Busch Student Center, Career & Interview Center

Interviewing is a skill, and like all skills you can improve with practice. This is your chance to practice interviewing with a knowledgeable industry professional! You will be paired with an employer volunteer or Rutgers alumni for a mock interview. This is your chance to practice your responses to common interview questions, and receive immediate feedback in real time. This 30-minute practice session will help reduce your interview anxiety and improve your interview skills so you can ace your next real interview to secure that internship or job. ATTIRE: The Mock Interview Clinic is designed to mirror a real-life interviewing experience. We ask that you dress professionally as you would for an actual interview. RESUME: After selecting your practice interview time slot, please upload a resume to your CareerKnight account and label it "Mock Interview Resume," or we will simply use the default resume in your profile. The industry professional interviewing you will need your resume beforehand to tailor questions to your experiences.

Registration Information:
This program requires preregistration. To register:

  1. Login to your CareerKnight account
  2. Select "Events, Workshops & Contests" on the left menu bar
  3. Select "Workshops" in the secondary gray bar
  4. You can use the keyword search field to search through the various programs in the system to locate this event
  5. Only students who RSVP for information sessions are guaranteed seats. Others will be allowed into the room five minutes prior to the start time if space is available.

RSVP No-Show Policy:

Participants are considered "no-shows" when they fail to cancel their RSVPs through CareerKnight with sufficient notice (within 24 hours of the program). Failure to attend events for which students have submitted RSVPs will result in a suspension of all CareerKnight privileges, including On-Campus Interviews and job postings. In case of inclement weather, please check www.rutgers.edu to determine the University's operating status. We will follow all closings and delays.

Why we need a no-show/cancellation policy for events: Please note that when participants no-show for events that require an RSVP, it is unfair to potential participants who wanted to attend but couldn't due to a possible waitlist. In addition, for some events (not all) we have employers and organizers who participate and they are giving their time to assist RU students/alumni. Thus, having no-shows for RSVP events not only reflects negatively on you, but on Rutgers University as well. Moreover, such lapses of etiquette are generally not tolerated in business and civic settings.

Registration Information: Learn more and register by logging into your Rutgers Handshake account.

Sessions are ONLY open to Rutgers-New Brunswick students as well as RBS-Newark.
