Mock Interview Program a Success

9/8/06 – The Boston College Law School Career Services Office recently held its annual Mock Interview Program for second-and third-year law students. Forty-eight alumni were welcomed back to campus to participate in the event, where alumni and students simulate the job interview process in order to help BC Law students better understand what to expect as they enter the workforce.

“The program was a huge success thanks to our dedicated alumni and enthusiastic students,” said Cara Fineman, Assistant Director of Career Services. “I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Program. We’ve received great feedback from both students and alumni.”

For two evenings, BC law students had the opportunity to refine their interviewing skills prior to the busy fall recruiting season. Each attorney conducted three 30 minute interviews, devoting the first 20 minutes to interviewing, while reserving the last 10 minutes for constructive critique of each student’s performance. One hundred and forty-four students received mock interviews over the course of the two evenings. This long-standing program has been a proven success in preparing law students for the rigors of fall recruiting.
