Prepare for an Interview

Students can email techcareerservices@mail.wvu.edu to schedule an interview prep/mock interview appointment via Google Meet or Zoom. 

Interviews are a very important part of your job or internship search and overall career success. Employers use the interview to assess your transferable skills and adaptable skills as well as your specific job skills. Employers evaluate candidates appearance, attitude, interpersonal skills and your potential to be a team member. The more time you spend preparing for an interview, the better will be your chances for successfully landing that desired position.
