The following policies have been established to maintain a professional interviewing process:
Students will upload a draft of their résumé and a cover letter or graduate school information at least two business days before the interview date on the Career and Professional Development’s D2L page.
The Career and Professional Development Center does not refund mock interview purchases.
If the fee was paid and the class subsequently dropped before the drop/add period for the semester was over, the student may contact the Mock Interview Program coordinator for permission, and then contact the Bursar’s office to request a refund for the purchase. The Bursar and/or the Career and Professional Development Center have the right to refuse a refund at any time, and refunds will not be permitted after the drop/add period is over.
Students must submit all required documents (example: résumé and cover letter) for their interview by the specified date on the Career and Professional Development Center D2L page. Should students fail to submit their documents in the specified manner and by the specified due date, they will forfeit all associated points for their mock interview grade. The interviewer may, however, still critique the documents and give feedback regardless of the date submitted.
Students must be present for their appointment at or before the time of their selected interview as applicable. Mock interviewers will wait 15 minutes for Zoom Mock Interview appointments and will attempt to reach the student two times if the student is not prompt for their interview. If at that time students are not present for their interview, they will be marked as a no-show for their interview. Students will then need to purchase a “second mock interview” on IUP Marketplace and go through the sign-up process again if you intend to complete the mock interview assignment.
Mock Interviews will not be rescheduled. Once the student chooses a time slot for their interview and/or etiquette dinner, that decision is final.
