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
