Mock Interviews

Mock interviews with a career advisor are designed to replicate the type of interview that you may expect from a recruiter. Schedule a mock interview through our "request a counseling appointment" system.

The day of your mock interview:

  • Please arrive at Career Services early and dress for a formal interview. Bring a copy of your resume and a company/job description or graduate program description for the interviewer.
  • If you are unable to keep your appointment, please cancel the appointment through Beaver JobNet (same steps as requesting your appointment) or call Career Services at 541-737-4085 to cancel or reschedule.
