Practice Interview Days


We offer Practice Interview Day events every semester for CLA students. This is an extremely helpful way to prepare for job or internship interviews. Your practice interview is facilitated by a professional recruiter. After it, you receive individualized feedback and interviewing tips.

Practice Interview Day events are posted on GoldPASS and on our Events page. If you don't see one listed there now, check back later. To participate, you'll register for a 45-minute time-slot. We'll follow up by emailing you more details.

Practice Interview Days are free and open to all CLA students. (CLA juniors and seniors are especially encouraged to participate.) Below are quotes from CLA students who have participated in this event. It's clear they found these practice interviews to be a valuable resource!
