Mock Interviews

Two presenters doing a mock interview and shaking handsMock interviews provide a safe space to learn the dynamics of an interview. It takes practice to become comfortable with these skills. Being able to go through an interview requires a lot of skills…shaking hands, talking about your skills, experience, abilities, and asking an adult for a business card.

Mock interviews can be done in preparation for actual interviews. They can be repeated as needed in order to prepare for additional interviews.
