Mock Interview Day

Mock Interview Day

Career Services
Northwest Missouri State University

Date:               Wednesday, February 19, 2020
Time:               8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Length:            30 Minutes
Location:          3rd Floor, Student Union

The goal of this event is to help students gain interviewing experience by meeting face-to-face with real employers. During the interview, the employers will provide students with feedback on their resume, interview responses, and overall impression. We encourage employers to use their own interview format to make mock interviews as close to a real interview as possible.

Each mock interview session will be approximately 30 minutes, which allows:

  • 20 minutes to conduct the interview
  • 5-10 minutes to critique the resume/interviewing skills and provide feedback  

Spots will fill up quickly!

  • To reserve an interview spot, come into the Career Services office in Administration Building 130, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. You must submit a resume to reserve an interview spot. Interviews are filled on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Sign-up as soon as possible for best availability! Sign-up begins January 21.
  • Check out to see what employers have registered to attend: https://www.nwmissouri.edu/career/events/mid.htm
