You can look great on paper, but if you are unable to “sell yourself” to a prospective employer with enthusiasm and confidence during an interview, landing a job will be challenging. The Center for Career and Professional Development is here to help you with your interviewing skills. View the CCPD Interview Guide for tips more information.
In addition to this guide, we offer mock interviews and mock phone interviews during scheduled appointments with Career Coaches. You can schedule online through Handshake.
Online Interview Prep
We also have an online resource for interview prep called Big Interview. Use Big Interview to learn and practice your interview skills, whether you’re interviewing for a job or graduate school. You can access Big Interview with your @kzoo.edu email address. Alumni also have access to Big Interview, please contact the CCPD at Career@kzoo.edu to request the Organization Code and login.
The CCPD highly encourages all students to have appropriate interview attire for their industry. Often, even when you wouldn’t wear a suit to work, that level can be expected for an interview. If you are concerned about cost, please see Finding a Suit for Less for tips.
