So, how can you avoid freezing during an interview? The answer is simple, mock interviews!
Lucky for you, we are hosting a Mock Interview Day on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th from 9am- 3:30pm. This is your chance to schedule mock interviews with REAL employers without the stress of having a job or internship on the line! These employers will ask you basic, behavioral interview questions and provide feedback on your ability to answer their questions, body language and overall presence. This feedback will give you some great insight on your areas for improvement and instances where you shine!
