Mock Madness is HERE!

Practice your Interview Skills and earn a chance to win a Bentley sweatshirt and other fabulous prizes!

When you get selected to enter the “big dance” of the interview process with your favorite employer, you want to be sure you are well prepared to perform at your best! For the end of March, the Pulsifer Career Development Center will provide you with a little extra incentive to practice some of the most common interview questions. To enter our “Mock Madness” contest, students will complete a 5-question mock interview assignment via Big Interview. Students who receive gold badges in the AI Feedback  on at least 3 of the 5 questions will be  entered in a drawing to win a Bentley sweatshirt and other fabulous prizes.

Contest will run between March 19 – March 29 2024. Questions will give you the opportunity to practice introducing yourself, and speaking about some common skills required for most entry level jobs.   

Open to current Bentley students only. See contest rules below. Any questions can be referred directly to Lisa Dinsmore (
