Are you nervous about the job interview process?  Then take advantage of Career & Academic Planning’s Mock Interview Program!   This gives you a chance to practice interviewing without the “pressure” of getting the job! 

Mock Interviews are offered on campus and help to maximize your skills by offering you the opportunity  to practice interviewing with an employer.  The interviews last 30 minutes total, with 20 minutes allotted for the interview and 10 minutes for the interviewer to provide feedback.  All Mock Interviews are held in the Sonner Hall Interview Center (Lower Level).
Mock Interviews include behavioral interview questions, which are open-ended asking you about past work or life experiences. Learn more about behavioral interviewing, to know what to expect.  Check out the Interviewing portion of the Career & Academic Planning website for more information.
To participate in a Mock Interview you must first view the online Recruit-A-Duke Tutorial, if you haven’t already done so.  After viewing the tutorial, you will be able to sign up for a Mock Interview on Recruit-A-Duke!  Each student is allowed one Mock Interview per semester, due to high demand.
 
To sign up, log into Recruit-A-Duke and click on the “Job Opportunities” tab at the top of the page, then click on “On-Campus Recruiting – Job Opportunities for JMU Students.” Next, type in “Mock” in the Keyword Search field and proceed to “Apply” for the interview you would like to participate in.  You do not need have a desire to work for the particular company you sign up for, as the interview is more focused on your benefit, not about the company or industry.
