Mock Interview Attendance Policy

You are required to dress professionally and bring a resume.

If you fail to appear or do not cancel before 12 pm (noon) the day before an interview date, you will be considered as a no show. You must contact your instructor for permission to reschedule and ask the instructor to contact Career Services for confirmation to reschedule your interview. You will also need to write a letter/email of apology to the mock interview mentor and submit a copy to Karen Bills at bills@tarleton.edu.

Secrets to Interview Success

The purpose of an interview is for you and an employer to get acquainted and explore the possibility of working together. Knowing who you are and what you can do is critical to your job-hunting success. Think about your interests, skills and abilities (how they apply to the position), education, values, strengths and weaknesses and most of all your career goals.

Preparation is the key which includes researching the company and practicing for the interview. Career Services provides mock interviews which allows you to have a 30-minute practice with a professional and receive constructive feedback. To view a schedule of mock interview dates, click on the "mock interviews" below. If you can't make any of these times, we will be happy to schedule you at another time.

The links below provide information about interviewing, plus we have resources available to you in the Career Services Center, room 218 of the Thompson Student Center. Let us help you make your interviewing successful.
