Interviewing is a skill. Like all skills, it takes practice. Mock interviews are a great way to gain experience, practice interview skills, receive feedback, and improve performance.

The Practice Interview Program is a chance for students to prepare and practice interviewing for an upcoming internship or full-time job opportunities. Students will have the opportunity to practice interviewing with a Columbia University alum and receive real-world feedback in real time.

Want to Participate in the Practice Interview Program?

Registration for the Practice Interview Program typically opens at the beginning of each semester. This program is offered on select evenings each fall and spring from 6:30 — 9:00 p.m. Students will be able to schedule a 45-minute one-on-one session with a Columbia alum. We do our best to match you with an alum in your industry of interest.

You must schedule an appointment in advance by telephone. Slots will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Mock interviewing is honestly the most helpful experience I’ve had at CCE. I felt she was very knowledgeable and experienced and appreciated this a lot. She gave me great feedback as well.”

“It was a rewarding experience. I gained a lot of knowledge about the interview process that I was lacking. I am glad I chose to participate in the mock interview.”
