Practice interviews with an advisor
In accordance with the Virginia Tech COVID-19 information for the university community, we now offer advising appointments by phone or zoom, and not in person, until further notice.
Career and Professional Development offers appointments with an advisor for practice interviews for currently enrolled Virginia Tech students. The purpose is to help you prepare for an interview for employment or graduate school admission. You prepare in advance just as you do for your real interview. A practice interview can happen after you get familiar with interview basics, and more, that you'll find in our interview skills guide, and you're ready to practice answering interview questions.
