MOCK INTERVIEW PROGRAM

Our Mock Interview Program (MIP) will run during the normal recruiting season as an educational opportunity open to all students on campus. This is an excellent way to meet students as well as brand your organization on campus. We have found that employers have used programs such as this one as an excellent pre-recruiting tool to generate interest in their organization. Throughout their job search, students have often turned to their mock interview employer as a real, prospective employer.

Past employer partners have included: Google, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Wells Fargo, Autism Charlotte, Clark Nexsen, Rock Hill Police Department, Charlotte Agenda, Moses Cone Health System, The Schiele Museum of Natural History, KPMG, Seacrest Studios and many more!

Process

The MIP Team will work with you to market your on-campus or virtual mock interviews with students who match criteria you set. Once those students have had time to sign up, the mock interviews are opened up to all students on campus to fill any remaining time-slots. Each time-slot is 30 minutes long. Normally, there are 20 minutes of interviewing and then 10 minutes for the employer to give feedback to the student. We have the capability to do this both on campus and virtually.

Big Interview Custom Sets

Do you have a competitive entry-level position or internship? Then this tool is perfect for you! A MIP Team Member will work with you to create a custom set of questions in our online mock interview practice tool, Big Interview. From here students can practice for your interview and even share their answers with you for review.  

Availability

Spring 2018 availability to be determined.

ON-CAMPUS RECRUITING

An effective way to recruit highly talented UNC Charlotte students is to take advantage of on-campus interviews. This allows employers to maximize their recruiting efforts while accommodating the busy academic schedules of students. Employers who recruit on-campus create connections with UNC Charlotte’s talented students/alumni, increasing their campus brand and presence. On-campus interviews are created and scheduled through Hire-A-Niner, UNC Charlotte’s comprehensive system for posting jobs and internships, searching student resumes, and registering for recruiting events.

Note: Employers must have a current posting in Hire-A-Niner to participate in on-campus recruitment.
