Practice Your Interviewing Technique at the Los Angeles Conference

posted by Christopher Howard — Dec 09, 2011

Students and emerging professionals have the opportunity to sign up for a twenty-minute practice interview with a professional at the 2012 Annual Conference in Los Angeles. Organized by the Student and Emerging Professionals Committee, the Mock Interview Sessions give participants the chance to practice their interview skills one on one with a seasoned professional, improve their effectiveness during interviews, and hone their elevator speech. Interviewers also provide candid feedback on application packets.

Mock Interview Sessions are offered free of charge. Sessions are filled by appointment only and scheduled for Thursday, February 23, 10:00 AM–NOON and 4:00–6:00 PM; and Friday, February 24, 10:00 AM–NOON. Conference registration, while encouraged, is not necessary to participate.

To apply, download, complete, and send the Mock Interview Sessions form to Jennifer Stoneking-Stewart, chair of the Student and Emerging Professionals Committee. You may enroll in one twenty-minute session. Limited onsite enrollment is available for Thursday afternoon only. Onsite reservation starts on Wednesday afternoon, February 22, for spaces on Thursday, February 23, between 4:00 and 6:00 PM. Deadline: February 1, 2012.

You will be notified of your appointment day and time by email. Please bring your application packet, including cover letter, CV, and other materials related to jobs in your field. The Student and Emerging Professionals Committee will make every effort to accommodate all applicants; however, space is limited.
