Practice Interview Week for Juniors and Seniors January 26-29, 2015
(a MUST for students seeking internships and jobs)
Practice interviews will teach you how to identify the skills and competencies interviewers look for, and how to prepare in advance for difficult questions. All students will receive feedback on how to improve.
Employers tell us that NIU students struggle with answering behavioral and situational interview questions.
You are competing against students from all Midwest schools (think Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Iowa), not just NIU Huskies.
Other schools require their students to practice interviewing to give them a competitive advantage.
Employers are making hiring decisions earlier.
The interview gets you the job/internship!

If I schedule a practice interview, I will show up for my interview.

I understand that if I miss an interview, my Huskies Get Hired! account will be terminated if I do not write a prompt, professionally worded apology letter to the employer explaining my absence. A copy of the apology must be submitted to Campus Recruiting (email@example.com)
When I publish my resume in Huskies Get Hired!, I understand my contact information is visible to employers and my resume may be released to employers.
