Participate in the Mock Interview Program   

UD's Career Services provides students with an opportunity to practice their interview skills by participating in a mock interview with a professional in a career field of their interest.

We encourage local professionals/retirees to participate as a mock interviewer for UD students.

This is a helpful program for students to develop their interview skills with a critique provided by the interview.  As well as, a critique of their resume & cover letter.   Also, this program serves as a healthy means of networking for students within their field of interest. 

For more information on the mock interview program or if interested in serving as a mock interviewer, please contact Sandy Jewett, B.A.M., Employer Relations Specialist to review dates and times available on the UD campus   or (563)-589-3113

*Special Note:  During the 2011-2012 academic year, local employers, representatives and retirees donated over 500 hours to assist UD students through the Mock Interview Program.  We are greatly appreciative for their service.
