Want to practice promoting yourself and your strengths in a non-threatening environment?

It's always a good idea to be mentally prepared for an upcoming interview. It's an even better idea to practice your interview skills ahead of time and practice saying what you WANT to say in a concise way!

Even if you aren't currently preparing for an interview, a mock interview is a a great way to practice promoting yourself in a positive and confident manner. This can pay off in any kind of formal and informal networking event and in your professional interactions with others. 

  • When: Tuesday, December 6th, 2.00 pm - 4.00 pm 
  • Where:  Burnaby, Blusson Hall 10031

During this workshop, you will be placed in a group of three, where you will have the opportunity to play all three roles: interviewee, interviewer, and observer. You will be provided with feedback from the facilitators and other participants. 

To prepare for this workshop, you will need to bring in a job posting and a few interview questions in advance. More info is on the registration page in myInvolvement.
