The UO Career Center's Practice Interview Program is a safe place to practice interview skills, gain confidence and receive interview feedback from an experienced hiring professional. Guest employers volunteer their time to interview students and provide them with immediate feedback on their interviewing skills. Interviews are 45 minutes in length: 30 minutes for the interview and 15 minutes for immediate feedback from the interviewer.

Why Sign-up For A Practice Interview?
Knowing what to expect and how to prepare will lead to successful future interviews. Success begins with preparation.
You will receive immediate verbal and written interview feedback from our guest employer and provided a Practice Interview evaluation form to take with you.
Practice makes better! Get a jump start on your job search, boost your interview skills and increase your chances for a successful interview the next time you're in front of an employer.

The goal of a successful interview is to be the candidate of choice. How do you accomplish this during an interview?
Distinguish yourself from other candidates
Communicate "evidence" of your ability to do the job
Strategically highlight experiences, skills, and knowledge related to the job

The Practice Interview Program is part of the On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) Program. Not showing up for a scheduled practice interview is unprofessional and guarantees disqualification from Duck Connect privileges.
