Mock Interview Day
Mock Interview Day, celebrating its tenth anniversary, provided more than 150 Wentworth students the opportunity to engage in 20-30 minute interview sessions with more than 60 volunteers from approximately 50 participating employer organizations who offered constructive feedback for improving interview skills and understanding the nuances and proper techniques for handling a job interview.
Approximately 250 interviews took place during the event, which is specifically focused on junior students as they begin their search for cooperative education (co-op) employment.
Mock Interview Day also highlights the importance of collaboration among higher education, employer organizations, and alumni. Interview volunteers, including several Wentworth alumni, generously gave their time in an effort to enhance the interview skills of students. The event was organized by the Department of Career Services.
