What is the Practice Interview Event? 


Interviews can be as easy as pie.

Our Practice Interview Event (PIE) will help you prepare and feel confident for interviews and career fairs.

Receive feedback on your interviewing skills in a low-pressure, no-strings-attached 30 minute virtual practice interview with an employer.

Apply then sign up for a timeslot on Handshake.

How does it work?

Your virtual practice interview will be conducted online and will last 30 minutes, including 5 minutes of feedback halfway through. You can then apply the employer's feedback during the last half of your practice interview.

  • Sign up for a practice interview on Handshake.
  • Practice interview slots are first-come, first-served.

How do I register?

  1. Navigate to the VIRTUAL Practice Interview Event (PIE) position on Handshake.
  2. Select "Apply Now."
  3. Reserve a timeslot by clicking "Take Slot."

If you have difficulty securing a timeslot, navigate to Jobs/On-Campus Interviews/VIRTUAL Practice Interview Event (PIE) on Handshake.

IMPORTANT: If at any time you can no longer attend your practice interview, you must cancel your registration on Handshake.
