Start Here: Interviewing Guide

The CPDC offers in-person practice, or, "mock interviews" to students preparing for any kind of interview (job, internship, grad school, etc.).  You can schedule an appointment directly through the CPDC or online.

What to bring with you for your mock interview:

  • Come dressed as you would for your actual interview.
  • Any other materials you would bring with you to an interview: portfolio with a notepad, resume, research materials, etc.
  • An open mind!  This is a time to talk honestly about areas in need of improvement, so be open to constructive feedback.
