UW Career Center offers Mock Interviews

A mock interview will help you:

  • Know what to expect when you interview for real
  • Learn more effective ways to answer different types of questions
  • Become more comfortable and confident during interviews
  • Have successful real interviews

Mock interview steps:

  • Choose a position-of-interest to focus on during your interview, which is usually an internship, job, scholarship finalist award or seat in a grad/professional program.
  • Contact our front desk to schedule a mock interview. Mock interviews generally last 40-50 minutes. For scheduling, please visit or call the Career Center. We can’t schedule appointments via email. Appointments for alumni and postdocs available for a fee.
  • Drop off or email a copy of your resume or CV, along with a description of your position-of-interest, at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment. Before your interview, review your resume/CV and research the employer or graduate program. Please prepare for this interview as you would a real interview.

Note: If you would like to record your interview, please bring a USB drive with 4 GB of available memory to your appointment. You may also choose to record your interview on your own mobile device, such as your cell phone.
