Mock Interview Day

Missouri State University Career Center is hosting our MOCK INTERVIEW DAY on Friday, November 4 from 9:00 am – 1:30 pm in the Plaster Student Union - Ballroom West (3rd Floor).

This event is an opportunity for students to meet with an employer to practice their interviewing skills.  Students and employers will need to sign-up ahead of time (by end of October) to ensure a time slot.

See the below instructions to sign-up.

Employer Instructions to sign-up for MOCK INTERVIEW DAY:

If you would like to sign up to participate in our MOCK INTERVIEW DAY on November 4, please complete the INTEREST FORM no later than October 14th

You will receive an official confirmation email from the Career Center once we’ve received and reviewed your interest form.  

Mock Interviews will be 30-minute interview time slots allowing time for 15–20-minute interviews and then 5–10-minute feedback time as the main benefit in a mock interview is getting guidance, feedback and advice.

We will provide employers a schedule with students names, resumes and time slots at least the day before our event.  We will provide interview questions and evaluation forms for each student you work with; however, you are more than welcome to use your own interview questions, especially if the student’s major is in alignment with your organization career options.
