Are you ready for the fall interviewing season?

As you begin searching for a summer internship or 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. 

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 students:

"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

"My interview went very well.  I took you advice and incorporated a bit more of myself into the interview and smiled a bit more which I think really helped.  My interviewer invited me back for the second round of interviews in their office in late October." -CC '13

"Just wanted to let you know that I got it!! Thank you so much for your help with the mock interview. It definitely made me more comfortable." -SOA, '15

"Thank you so much for your help with preparing me for the interview the other day. I am happy to inform you that I got the job and signed a contract today with the company.  I wasn't so happy about the salary and I negotiated with them and got them to raise it a bit but I think it will be a good start especially under the economical situation that we are going through. Thank you again." -GS, '11
