Mock Job Interviews Prepare Students for Workforce

Your feedback could help a student land a job in today’s tough economy – volunteer today!

MCC’s Office of Alumni Relations, in collaboration with Career Services, is seeking alumni volunteers to conduct mock job interviews for students later this fall.  Volunteer times are available October 29, October 30, and November 5, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.  

Interviews are conducted in a panel format.  Prior to the interview, students provide a résumé and the type of position for which they would like to practice.  The panel is given a set of typical interview questions and a rating sheet prepared by Career Services.  Immediately following the mock interview, panelists provide feedback to the student on both the résumé and the interview.  Sessions are recorded for student interviewees to review comments and their own performance. 

MCC student Kate McMichael participated in an interview during spring 2012 and shared this experience: 

I just got a call from a company, and they offered me a job!

“I just got a call from a company, and they offered me a job!  Many of the suggestions given during the mock interview where used during my interview.  Your alumni team at MCC shared something priceless - wisdom."
