Mock Interview Module
Through SHIP Career Connection, students can practice their interview skills by responding to pre-recorded questions with their webcams. Simply login and select “Mock Interview” from the list of options on the right side menu bar. There are many interviews on the website, so students can choose one relevant to their major or the position they are applying for. After completing the interview, students will receive feedback from a CCEC staff member, and can schedule an appointment to review and practice answers in person.
Student Appointment No Show Policy
The Career and Community Engagement Center maintains a busy schedule with appointments, on-campus interviews and career and service related events. We encourage students to be professional and keep scheduled appointment times. We understand that sometimes situations occur which may prevent that; but it is important to be professional in responding to those situations (Please call the office at (717) 477-1484 if you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment/interview time). Failure to keep scheduled appointments prevents others from scheduling appointments; and it reflects poorly on the student, the Career and Community Engagement Center, and the institution when students fail to keep scheduled interview times. The Career and Community Engagement Center has developed a “ Student Appointment No Show/Cancellation Policy” which will be followed. Multiple occurrences of missed appointments will result in suspension of services to the Career and Community Engagement Center until approval/reinstatement from the Director.
