Mock Interviews

Not being aware of how job interviews operate can be intimidating for everyone. That's why we invite employers to participate in mock interviews every year with our students in order to provide them with an opportunity to practice practical interviewing skills. Students are asked common interview questions, given tips on how to present yourself, and presented with advice on their résumé.

At the same time, human resource professionals and supervisors can sharpen their candidate interviewing skills. Additionally, mock interviews provide opportunities for local businesses to identify entry-level talent. Some of our students have been hired or provided internships on the basis of their performance in mock interviews.

For more information about providing assistance with résumé preparation or mock interviews, please contact Career and Transistions Manager Shawna Huely at 847-473-3483, ext. 1003, or
