The Practice Interview Program is designed to help you acquire professional interview skills, get feedback from experienced professionals, and gain confidence. A practice interview helps you prepare for real-life interviews, which increases your chances of getting additional interviews and acquiring the job.

Sign up for a Practice Interview

  1. Upload your résumé to DuckConnect.
  2. On DuckConnect select “On-Campus Interviews” and then “APPLY for On-Campus Interviews I Qualify for”.
  3. Search for a position and organization you would like to have a practice interview with and review the position description, qualifications, and important deadlines.
  4. Click “Request Interview” button to submit your résumé.
  5. Check your interview requests and confirmations on DuckConnect under “View My Activity”.

Prepare for your Practice Interview

  1. Attend a Career Center workshop to learn how to prepare for a job search, interview, or how to write an impressive résumé.
  2. Research the organization you are interviewing with.
  3. Treat this interview as an actual interview—dress appropriately, bring extra résumés, and come prepared with questions to ask the interviewer.
  4. On the day of the interview arrive 10-15 minutes early and check in at the Career Center reception desk.

Failure to attend your interview is unprofessional and will result in your disqualification from DuckConnect privileges.
