Every semester, BEST invites business professionals from around the community to dine with and hold a “mock” interview for its members. BEST members prepare for this event as if they were applying for a real job: they update their resumes, write cover letters, learn about the company that is interviewing them, and dress to impress!
At dinner, the members and professionals have an opportunity to network with one another. Then BEST members are paired with a professional for a 15-minute round, during which they are interviewed and given feedback on their performance and their resume.
The professionals also fill out evaluation forms for the members to take home after for further reflection. Mock Interview is a great opportunity for members to practice and perfect their interviewing skills and for professionals to meet some of Shidler’s brightest students!
