Mock Interviews & Résumé Critiques
As with every skill you’ve ever learned, you have to learn a technique and then practice, practice, practice!
A mock interview will not only help you perfect your technique, but it will also allow you to get valuable feedback and coaching on your performance. Working with a professional and getting feedback on your performance in a mock interview is similar to working with a sports coach to learn how to improve your game — both will enable you to learn where your strengths lie and where you may need work to improve your performance.
Time spent practicing will assist you greatly in either situation. An added bonus to preparing and practicing is the self-confidence you will gain.
In today’s competitive job market, you must be prepared and in top shape.
As job seekers, majority of the time, your first interview is generally a phone interview. The sole purpose of phone interviews is for the organization to:
- Fill in missing information or details from your resume’ or application
- Gauge how interested you are in the position
- To ensure that you understand the primary job responsibilities
- To reduce the candidate pool and pursue candidates that appear to potentially be a good fit
The committee has decided to create a phone interview environment. A rubric will be created that will enable the interviewers to grade the interviewees on specific criterions on a 5-point grading scale.
Information about signing up as an interviewee or interviewer will be coming soon.
If you’re interested in participating in or conducting a mock interview, please contact Emerging Recreational Sports Leaders Conference Committee Programming Chair Charles Judkins.
Those interested in participating as interviewees need to submit his or her resume to Charles Judkins by January 7, 2019.
