Career Growth Series for staff: Mock interviews

Want to brush up on your interviewing skills? Wondering if your responses are truly conveying your expertise and experiences? Or wondering what it’s like to interview using newer interviewing technology like Spark Hire? 

HR Employee Learning & Engagement invites you to meet with a talent acquisition consultant for a 45-minute mock interview. In the individual sessions, a consultant will provide feedback on your interview and tips on how to prepare. When signing up for a time slot, you may choose to have a live mock interview with feedback during the session, or to experience a Spark Hire interview before the session, where you will then discuss feedback. 

*Mock interviews are confidential with the sole purpose of practicing interviewing; consultants are not acting as career coaches and will not provide advice around the types of roles you might want to apply for, insight into departments, etc. Additionally, consultants will not speak to active job postings or applications.  

Mock interviews are available on June 28 and 29, and July 11 and 12.

*Please note that mock interview time slots are open now on a first come, first served basis. Each participant may sign up for one mock interview time slot. If time slots are full, we invite you to share your interest on this waiting list 

The goal of the Career Growth Series is to provide structured, intentional opportunities for staff to focus on their career development and to add tools and resources to their career development tool kit.   

Career Growth Series sessions include crafting your elevator pitch, building your online presence, updating and enhancing your resume, mock interviewing and more.

We invite you to participate in any sessions that interest you, adding to your tool kit as you build toward your next growth opportunity, whether that means gaining new skills to use in your current role, moving into a leadership position or enhancing your personal brand in your field.
