What is InterviewPREP? 

InterviewPREP is our kickoff event for each semester to help you prepare and feel confident for upcoming on-campus interviews and the Campus-Wide Career Fair! Receive feedback on your interviewing skills from an employer.

Register for the event on Handshake to have a 45 minute practice interview with an employer!

How does it work?

Your practice interview will last 45 minutes, including 10 minutes of feedback halfway through, so you can apply the employer's feedback during the last half of your practice interview.

  • You must register on Handshake no later than January 24.
  • You must upload your resume to Handshake before registering.
  • Practice interview slots are first-come, first-served.
  • Interview attire is required.

Register by clicking the "RSVP for Event" button and completing the event survey on Handshake. Based on your survey responses, Career & Academic Planning staff will email you within 1 week with your practice interview time.

IMPORTANT: If at any time you can no longer attend your practice interview, you must cancel your registration on Handshake. Please note there is a $25 No Show and Late Cancellation fee if you do not cancel your registration at least 24 hours in advance of the event.
