The practice interview program assists School of Management students in developing vital career skills.
This program, which has won a state award for excellence, is required for undergraduate students as part of the school's core career curriculum.
To make your practice interview as realistic as possible, the Career Resource Center (CRC) uses proven corporate human resources training methods to develop our staff of volunteer student interviewers. Students must submit a résumé and job posting prior to the interview. Practice interviewers ask both behavior-based and traditional interview questions based on the résumé and job posting submitted by the student. The practice interviews are conducted in the CRC interview rooms in 308 Alfiero in the fall and spring semesters.
The CRC has partnered with GEICO to bring you this award-winning program, which culminates in the GEICO Interview Challenge.
Note: Students enrolled in MGG 398 will complete a practice interview as part of their course.
"The CRC's practice interview program is awesome! I volunteered for this program and thereby got a chance to sit on the other side of the table (interviewer) and understand the common mistakes that we commit during an interview. Understanding the interviewer’s perspective helped me a lot while preparing for my own interviews.”
-- Shruthi Nambi, MBA '12
"One of the managers I interviewed with stopped me after the interview and told me that I blew her away when I asked for the job at the end of the interview. She said no one does that. Being a practice interviewer really paid off for knowing little details like closing the interview."
-- Jill Pitzonka, MBA '10
