Students will have a chance to practice their interviewing skills, no matter their current state, during Career Services’ annual Mock Interview Week in January.
From Jan. 22–25, students will be able to receive feedback on their interviewing from representatives involved in the hiring process at numerous companies. Both students and employers are expected to prepare for the interview as if it were for an actual position; employers receive the resumes of students they will be interviewing in advance, and students are expected to research the company.
“We try to make sure everyone is prepared in advance so it simulates the actual interview experience as much as possible,” said Kevin Stacia, career specialist at Georgia Tech Career Services. “The format is designed so that once students complete the interview, they can ask questions and get feedback in order to prepare for the spring recruiting season.”
Students can sign up for an interview slot through CareerBuzz from Dec. 15, 2012, through Jan. 15, 2013. Time slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and all interviews will take place in the Bill Moore Student Success Center, located near Tech Tower.
At the end of the week, Career Services will partner with Capital One to host a Case Interview Preparation Workshop on Friday, Jan. 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Success Center. The workshop is limited to 50 attendees, and students may register on a first-come, first-served basis through the “Events” tab in CareerBuzz. Select “Information Sessions,” then “Case Interview Workshop” to RSVP. The event will also have fashion consultants available to advise students on appropriate business attire.
