City Year Practice Interview - Resume Deadline 11/4

Sunday, November 4, 2018 to 11:59pm

Get Practice Interview Experience with Guest Employer: Ms. Donna Pham, Regional Recruitment Manager, West Region, City Year.

The UO Career Center's Practice Interview Program is a safe place to practice interview skills, gain confidence and receive interview feedback from an experienced hiring professional. Guest employers volunteer their time to interview students and provide them with immediate feedback on their interviewing skills. Interviews are 30 minutes in length: 20 minutes for the interview and 10 minutes for immediate feedback from the interviewer. Students will not be interviewing for a specific position but should be prepared to respond to general behavior interview questions.

Why Sign-up For A Practice Interview?

  • Knowing what to expect and how to prepare will lead to successful future interviews. Success begins with preparation.
  • You will receive immediate verbal and written interview feedback from our guest employer and provided a Practice Interview evaluation form to take with you.
  • Practice makes better! Get a jump start on your job search, boost your interview skills and increase your chances for a successful interview the next time you're in front of an employer.

The goal of a successful interview is to be the candidate of choice. How do you accomplish this during an interview?

  • Distinguish yourself from other candidates
  • Communicate "evidence" of your ability to do the job
  • Strategically highlight experiences, skills, and knowledge related to the job
