Recruiter Office Hours: Practice/Mock Interviews:

Location: Reno Hall 143

Practice Makes Perfect!  Prepare for an actual interview by assessing your skills in a “mock” consultation with a recruitment professional from a local employer who has committed to help UDM students stand-out from the crowd.  The one-on-one sessions will help sharpen your ability to communicate your professional accomplishments using the STAR technique. Participants will receive an Interview Preparation packet and are expected to prepare, as well as dress, for the “mock’ interview just as they would for the real thing. Format: 1/2 hour interview followed by ¼ hour feedback session.
