Fort Hays State University's Career Services office will host its annual Mock Interview Day on Thursday, Sept. 16, in Sheridan Hall, room 214.
Mock Interview Day allows students to network with employers, assess strengths, enhance skills and gain interview experience. Interviews consist of a 30-minute appointment period during which a mock employer conducts a simulated interview and then provides the student with an interview evaluation.
According to Career Services, 84 percent of businesses that recruited here last year said FHSU students need to be better prepared for interviews and that Mock Interview Day will prepare participants to face job interviews in the future.
Companies conducting mock interviews include Brungardt, Hower, Ward, Elliot & Pfeifer; Hays Medical Center; Koch Industries; Farm Credit; Youthville; Nex-Tech; and The Buckle.
The event is open and free to all non-education majors and all classifications including graduate students. For more information or to set up an appointment, contact Career Services at (785) 628-4260 or visit www.fhsu.edu/career.
