Practice Your Interviewing Technique at the Chicago Conference
posted by Christopher Howard — Sep 19, 2013
Students and emerging professionals have the opportunity to sign up for a twenty-minute practice interview at the 2014 Annual Conference in Chicago. Organized by the Student and Emerging Professionals Committee, 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; you must be a CAA member to participate. Sessions are filled by appointment only and scheduled for Thursday, February 13, 1:00–3:00 PM and 4:00–6:00 PM; and Friday, February 14, 9:00–11:00 AM and 2:30–4:30 PM. Conference registration, while encouraged, is not necessary to participate.
To apply, download, complete, and send the Mock Interview Sessions Enrollment form to Megan Koza Young, chair of the Student and Emerging Professionals Committee. You may enroll in one twenty-minute session.
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.
Onsite enrollment will be limited and first-come, first-served. Sign up in the Student and Emerging Professionals Lounge starting on Wednesday, February 12, at 4:00 PM.
