Our annual Mock Interview Day was held on Thursday, November 1st from 3:00pm –6:00pm in Watson Auditorium. The day consisted of five rounds of 35-minute interviews conducted by 41 employer volunteers from multiple companies across industries. In total, 108 students participated in 192 interviews, providing on average two practice interviews per student. Many of the employers will be inviting students back for formal interviews.
If you are a student who attended Mock Interview Day last week your next steps should be to follow up with employers by:
- Sending a thank you email to the employers with whom you spoke. Find our guide to thank you notes here.
- If a recruiter gave you specific instructions, be sure to follow through on those items and then follow up with the recruiter.
- Unable to send a thank-you note for lack of contact information? Stay connected with social media: find the company or even the person you spoke with on LinkedIn or Twitter. Follow their feeds to stay up to date with new openings and other news!
If you were unable to attend Mock Interview Day, be on the lookout for future opportunities to engage with employers and don’t miss the spring CO-OP + CAREER Fair on March 19th, 2019. Check WITworks as we get closer to the Spring Fair for updates on employers attending.
Employers, invitations for the spring CO-OP + CAREER Fair on March 19th will be sent out in the new year.
Thank you to all students and employers who joined us on November 1st to conduct practice interviews. We look forward to seeing everyone in the spring!
