Video: Students Practice the Art of Interviewing on Mock Interview Day Archives

More than 80 Bowdoin students participated in the College’s third annual Mock Interview Day last week, organized by Career Planning. Volunteer professionals, including Bowdoin alumni and staff, staged 20-minute interviews with each student, followed by a critique.

The event is designed to give students, particularly seniors, a chance to practice interviewing as they prepare for their job search. The volunteer interviewers work in a broad range of fields, from nonprofits and education to publishing and consulting. Students are matched up with interviewers based on the field they want to enter.
