The purpose of a mock interview is to practice going through the interviewing process, and as such, should be treated like a real interview. The participant should come appropriately dressed, arrive on time, and bring a copy of his/her résumé and cover letter.
To schedule a mock interview with one of our career counselors, please call the front desk at 617-824-8586, and specify you are looking to do a mock interview. Make sure to inform the staff whether or not you would like the interview to be recorded. Please note that you may be scheduled with a counselor you have not previously seen.
Please email a copy of your résumé and cover letter as well as the job description to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours prior to your mock interview.
