Interview Skills

A strong interview is key to a successful job search. Along with the resume and cover letter, the interview is an opportunity to make yourself stand out to a possible future employer. To assist students in honing their interviewing skills, the Office of Career development hosts interviewing workshops several times a semester (or view them anytime online). We also facilitate real-time practice interviews with career counselors, alumni and local businesspeople provide immediate feedback. Students may also access IMPRESS, our video software, through our SMC JobLink and record their responses to a wide variety questions. They may then review their interview for a self-critique or send it to a counselor or professor for review.
