Alumni and Friends - Speed Mock Interviewing
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
5:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Fine Arts Center Lobby
The Speed Mock Interviewing event will provide Viterbo alumni and friends an
opportunity to mentor current Viterbo students as they practice interviewing and
A brief orientation for interviewers and students will be held at 5:45 p.m.
During the event, students will make several 6-minute stops at tables staffed by
alumni and friends. During the 6 minutes, the alumni will facilitate
introductions, ask a typical interview question, listen to the student’s
response, and provide feedback to the student. Students will then move on to
another station to repeat a similar process.
Preceding and following the interviewing practice, time will be allotted for
Hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be provided before and after the
Alumni interviewers will interview students from a variety of majors. When
interviewing a student with an interest in your specific career field, the
interviewers may choose to ask a field-specific question of their choice. In
other cases, the interviewer will be asking more general interview questions. To
avoid having students repeatedly asked similar questions throughout the event,
alumni are asked to submit their general interview questions for approval prior
to the event. If you prefer, a general interview question can be provided to you
by the Career Services staff. Interviewers should abide by generally accepted
guidelines when choosing interview questions and should not ask things that may
be considered illegal or inappropriate (see http://www.jobinterviewquestions.org/questions/illegal-questions.asp for more information)
