One of the best ways to prepare for post-graduate opportunities is to participate in a mock interview. The Career Center offers phone, Skype, in-person, and panel mock interviews. Mock interviews at The Career Center are practice interviews conducted by trained Mock Interview Mentors and tailored to your individual occupational area or industry.
The Mock Interview Program allows you to hone your interviewing skills while developing confidence in your ability to deliver strong interview performances. You don't have to be searching for a job or internship to participate in the Mock Interview Program. It is never too early to start working on this essential career development skill!
Skype, panel, and in-person mock interviews are conducted in The Career Center, located in the Dunlap Success Center. Interviewees should report at least 10 minutes early.
Mock Interviews are conducted during Fall, Spring, and Summer C semesters.

How Do I Request a Skype, Phone, or Panel Mock Interview?

Any student that does not show up or cancel a mock interview will be blocked from participating in any on-campus interviewing activities until a letter of apology addressed to the Mock Interview Mentor is mailed or emailed to the Assistant Director for Mock Interviews. Two no-shows or late cancellations within the same semester will result in a permanent loss of ALL on-campus interviewing privileges. Documented illness is not considered a no-show; however, an apology letter is still required, addressed to:
Mock Interview Mentor
c/o Assistant Director for Mock Interviews
The FSU Career Center
*Note: Mock interviews are based on the resume and cover letter that you submit. Mentors will use the company/industry you list and will ask you questions that you might be asked during an actual interview.
