A "mock interview" is conducted as if it's a real interview, but in a low-pressure setting. Feedback is provided to help you improve your interview skills. There are two ways to schedule a mock interview with Career Services.
Mock Interview Service
Mock interviews are available by appointment throughout the year; call Career Services at 859-572-5680 to schedule a time with one of our Peer Career Assistants. Treat this as a normal interview - wear interview attire, prepare to answer and ask questions, etc. The Peer Career Assistant will record the practice interview session then watch it with you and discuss ways to improve your interview performance.
Mock Interview Day
Offered annually, local employers are invited to NKU to conduct practice interviews with students. This opportunity is the closest simulation of a "real" interview available. The employers and students will conduct the interview as if it's a selection interview for employment, then the employer will provide constructive feedback at the end. Students must schedule their Mock Interview Day appointment in advance, via HireNKU. Click here for a how-to guide.
