A typical mock interview is a practice job interview held with a professional career counselor. A mock interview helps you learn how to answer difficult questions, develop interview strategies, improve your communication skills and reduce your stress before an actual job interview.
During a mock interview, the interviewer may use a semi-structured interview format rather than asking a formal list of questions.
In-Person Mock Interviews
Many college career centers and career counselors offer in-person mock interviews. If you’re a college student or graduate, check with your career office to see if they provide in-person or phone or video mock interviews. If you’re not affiliated with a college or university, a career coach or counselor is another option for practice interviewing.
You can make an appointment with a mock interviewer, and provide her with information on either a specific company with whom you are interviewing, or your general career field.
The more specific information you can provide for your mock interviewer, the better. The mock interviewer will often record the interview with a video camera.
Some career centers and career counselors also offer mock phone and online video interviews, and will record your interview on a tape recorder or with a webcam.
After the mock interview (which usually lasts about 30 minutes), the interviewer will then review the interview with you, and provide feedback.
