The Campus Interview Policy applies for Mock Interviews.
Your college courses have loaded you with knowledge you need once you land your first job, but how about getting that first job? Mock interviews are free practice interviews sponsored by Baylor Career Services as part of a “preparing students for interviews” initiative.
A mock interview is one of the very best ways to prepare for an actual employment interview and how you can improve the way you present yourself. These interviews are meant to be as realistic as possible. You will be asked interview questions that would be asked by actual employers.
The best part about this process is you can fix or change things about how you interview. You may have no idea how much you over-use your words like “Umm and Like.” You can then consciously work on and fix the problem.
Mock interviews help:
- Students know themselves and their past experiences
- Get students prepared to answer difficult questions
- Reduce students’ anxiety and nervousness before an actual interview
The best ways to prepare for the mock interview, or any interview for that matter are:
- Dress professionally
- Arrive early
- Bring your resume
- Be prepared for behavioral questions. For example: “Tell me about a time that you had a disagreement with someone you worked with and how you handled the situation?” or “Tell me a mistake you made and how you fixed it.”
These things may seem like no-brainers, but people still come unprepared for interviews and with the stiff competition in this economy, being prepared for anything and everything is a must. Mock interviews before graduation are a great way for you to for what is to come.
