Are you ready for the spring interviewing season?

As you begin searching for a summer internship or a full-time position, one of the most daunting hurdles can be the interview. What do you say? How do you prepare? CCE is ready to answer your questions and guide you through the behavioral interview process: Think Purpose, Prepare, and Practice.

Interviewing is a skill that can be honed with practice. Whether you are seeking an internship and have never been on a formal interview or you are a mid-level professional with years of work and interviewing experience, CCE counselors are trained to provide you with clear and specific feedback to enhance your interviewing skills and help you feel more confident.

Mock interviews are always available at CCE, but as a comprehensive effort, CCE is bringing recent alumni who were in your shoes, CU Administrators and the entire CCE counseling staff to provide more opportunities for you to practice and improve your interviewing skills. 

95% of participants who participated in the Spring Mock Interview Program last year said they would recommend the program to a friend.

You must schedule an appointment in advance to participate in these extra mock interview sessions. Slots will be given on a first come, first served basis. Call the main desk at 212-854-5609 to schedule your 30 minute one-on-one session.

Feedback from other participants:

"I really enjoyed having a mock interview with you. The points you told me are what I would never know without your help. For example, I should have listened to your questions more carefully." -GSAS, '15

"I am very thankful to CCE that it provided the students with such a great opportunity. My mock interviewer, who fortunately worked in the field that I desired to start after my graduation, was immensely helpful by correcting some details in my resume and advising me on my overall interview process."
