Practice Interview Day Drop-In (12:00pm-4:00pm)

Real employers. Real conversations. Right here on campus.

A practice interview helps you prepare for real-life interviews, which increases your chances of getting additional interviews and acquiring the job. It is also a great way to meet and network with professionals, which can lead to opportunities in the future. Anyone can participate in a practice interview and it’s fun to practice with people in different industries to see different styles of interviewing you might encounter in real life.

The UO Practice Interview Day is designed to help you acquire professional interview skills, get feedback from experienced professionals, and gain confidence. You will not be interviewing for a specific job at the company our volunteer works for. You will instead be practicing commonly asked interview questions and getting active feedback on your communication style, professionalism, and more.

Each practice interview will last ~30 minutes and you will get instant feedback from one of our professional interviewers.

Register in Handshake ahead of time to get tips and early access to the practice interview questions! Interviews are on a first-come, first-serve basis with multiple slots each half-hour. Set aside at least 30 minutes to participate. Drop-in and grab the next open time slot!

PARTICIPATING GUEST EMPLOYERS/ALUMNI COMING SOON!

Contact Tina Haynes (thaynes@uoregon.edu) at the University Career Center for any questions or accommodation requests.
