Here at UNC Charlotte, the mock interview will consist of a 30-minute meeting with a recruiter from a company/organization. The mock interview will last for 20 minutes and for the final 10 minutes, the employer will give you feedback on both your resume and your interview skills. This program is a great way to network with employers and fine-tune your interview skills, while hopefully being a stepping-stone to finding your next opportunity. We offer both campus and virtual mock interviews.
