Interviewing is a skill that can be honed with practice. Whether you are seeking an internship and have never been on a formal interview or you are a mid-level professional with years of work and interviewing experience, CCE counselors are trained to provide you with clear and specific feedback to enhance your interviewing skills and help you feel more confident.
Practice interviews are 30 or 60 minute long appointments during which you will be asked a number of interview questions specific to an area of interest or job. During this time, a counselor will provide feedback on your answers, review your strengths and areas that need improvement, and address any questions you may have. If you would like the interview to be recorded, please specify this when scheduling your appointment. If your practice interview is recorded, you may take the copy of the disc with you for your own personal viewing. In order for your counselor to ask you industry specific questions, please send a resume, cover letter, and job description to your assigned career counselor at least two days in advance. You may give a brief description of your field of interest if you are not interviewing for a specific job.
Call the reception desk at 212.854.5609 to schedule a practice interview.
If you are unsure of how to dress the day of your actual interview, you are welcome to dress in interview attire for your practice interview, which many students find makes for a more realistic experience. Your counselor can give you feedback on your attire, as well.
