Summer Interview Prep | Mock Interviews
Hone your interviewing skills and receive feedback prior to summer off-campus interviews and August OCI by taking advantage of this opportunity to have a mock interview with a CSO career counselor. Mock interviews, which will be held at the Law School or via Zoom videoconference*, will be 20-minutes in length followed by a 10-minute review. Dress professionally as you would for a real interview on the day of your mock interview.
To prepare for your upcoming interviews, please watch the Preparing for Legal Interviews in Five Steps video (9:01 minutes) or review the Five Steps brochure (PDF) and complete your Interview Preparation Worksheet (Word) in advance of your mock interview.
- Event Date:
- July 8-August 5, 2019
