Interviewing Guide
In addition to reading the guide above, we recommend that you practice interviewing.  

Mock Interviews
Schedule a mock interview with a career counselor to receive feedback on your interviewing skills.  This usually takes 30-45 minutes mimics an actual interview.  An optional component of the mock interview is to have the interview recorded. Recording your interview assists in the review process, and you can take the recording with you after the mock interview. Being able to review your interview will only help you to improve your interviewing skills.  To schedule a mock interview, call the Career Center at 717-245-1740.
