Mock Interviews

The Career Services Office an affiliate of the Center for Student Development (CSD) provides “practice” interviews for all students at Regent University. Practice interviews are half in hour practice sessions with a staff member. These simulated experiences can occur in-person, over the telephone, or on-line with the purpose to improve your interviewing skills and provide you with feedback to prepare for professional interviews. To schedule a practice interview, email careerservices@regent.edu, with the subject matter “Practice Interview” and three days and times that you are available for the experience. Please allow at least 48 business hours for a response.

The Career Services Office also provides “MOCK” interviews for all students at Regent University. These practice interviews are 15 minute interviews with representatives from various organizations.
