Mock Interviews

In the Fall semester, first year law students in the Professionalism and the Law course will participate in a required mock on-campus interview (OCI) session with Career Services staff or volunteer faculty. The mock interview helps prepare students for future job interviews for summer, fall, spring, and full-time positions after graduation.

Through the mock interview, students will practice;

  • giving their elevator/brand speech;
  • researching a private, public, or non-legal employer;
  • answering commonly asked questions;
  • preparing a resume and cover letter;
  • dressing in appropriate interview attire; and
  • selecting an interview time through Symplicity CSM.
