Mock Interview Day

Mock interviews are a great way to gain experience, practice interview skills, receive feedback, and improve performance.

Students can practice their interviewing skills with some of RIT's employer partners. Through one-on-one guidance, students participate in a 20-minute virtual mock interview followed by a 10-minute review from the interviewer.

Mock interviews are designed for students to practice their basic interview skills. Interview questions are general and not technically specific.
