Each year, Bowdoin Career Planning gives seniors a chance to practice the tricky skill of interviewing before they launch their job searches.
This year, approximately 82 seniors signed up for Mock Interview Day on Oct. 18. They were allotted 20 minutes each to meet with a pseudo-employer and pretend to be a job candidate. After time was up, the interviewers critiqued students on their performances.
Serving as interviewers were community members, alumni and Bowdoin staff, representing diverse fields such as consulting, finance, education, government, health, marketing, publishing, art, nonprofits, science and media.
