McComsey Career Development Center

The ability to interview well is an absolutely essential skill that you must develop in order to be successful in the job search. Like any skill, practice makes perfect.

Practice interviews
Email the Career Development Center for a practice job or grad school interview with a counselor at the CDC. (In the email include your major/class year, days/times available, and that it is a request for a practice interview.) We will

  • Give you a half-hour practice interview with specific questions based on the company, graduate school or general career
    field you're interviewing for.
  • Spend 20 minutes or so reviewing the interview with you and giving constructive feedback.

We highly recommend that you practice interviewing at least once before the real thing. It takes most people 3-4 interviews (real or practice) before they feel comfortable in that situation.

To make an appointment: call 607.871.2164 or Email the Career Development Center with the following information:
- Days and times you are available
- Class year and major
- The career related topic/issue you would like to address
