Mock Interview Event

The following is a special needs program update from College Living Experience | CLE | Choose Your Future. You may also click here to read the original article on the program’s website.

SONY DSCOn Tuesday, September 9th, CLE – Rockville held a Mock Interview event which got rave reviews from one and all. CLE partnered with the Rockville Chamber of Commerce to provide practice with essential interviewing skills to our aspiring young professionals as well as clients from Cornerstone Montgomery. Business owners from a variety of industries, including banks, non-profits, insurance companies, and the food industry, all contributed to provide a varied experience for our interviewees.

SONY DSCThe interviewers were given a brief introduction on what to expect with this population as well as possible questions to ask and feedback forms. All participants moved through 15 minute interview slots based on written cards with their scheduled appointments. They received verbal feedback at the end of their interview based on their performance but received more detailed follow up in CLE Career Development sessions following the event. Participants were able to practice common interview strategies as well as more challenging concepts like delivering a self-disclosure statement (which really impressed business owners from the community). Planning for the next Mock Interview event is already in the works.
