Interviews..it’s make or break

Do you get nervous just thinking about going on an interview?

Mock Interviews are an essential tool to increase your interpersonal skills.

Get evaluated on your performance and receive pointers to ace that next interview! Employers and alumni offer helpful and honest feedback on your appearance, presentation, ability to answer the question and confidence.

  • MOCK INTERVIEW NIGHT – 10/15: Employers will be conducting practice job interviews with Bentley students who are seeking full-time or internship positions.  There are 90 interview slots available, so sign up early!

 

What will happen during the Interview

The interview is designed to help you learn to effectively present your skills, experience, and professionalism. Your interview will be approximately 15 minutes, and the remaining 5 minutes will be used for you and the interviewer to discuss and critique your skills, and to address questions you may have. Please understand this is meant to IMPROVE your skills and therefore constructive criticism is essential. If you have questions or concerns about the feedback you receive please follow up with Kristine Vidic, Sr. Associate in UCS

 

Prepare for Your Mock Interview

Take time to review interviewing tips (Interviewing & Professional Dress). Be prepared to talk about yourself – interests, skills, strengths, weaknesses, and goals. If you do not have a lot of work experience you should be prepared to discuss classroom projects, community service or volunteerism, and other ways you are engaged on campus or within the Bentley community. Always have questions prepared for the interviewer! Remember, they are not just interviewing you but this is your chance to interview them as well.
