The following policies have been established to maintain a professional interviewing process:
Office hours in the Career and Professional Development Center are Monday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The Career and Professional Development Center does not refund mock interview and/or etiquette dinner 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 will be given information at the beginning of the semester via information sessions and/or online via the Career and Professional Development Center D2L page for the mock interview and etiquette dinner sign-up process.
It is the student’s responsibility to access and follow directions for signing up for mock interviews and/or etiquette dinner.
Students must sign up for a mock interview and/or etiquette dinner within the specified time period during the semester/session.
Students must submit all required documents (example: résumé, cover letter, job posting) 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 appear at the Career and Professional Development Center (for in-person interviews), answer the designated phone (for phone interviews), or respond via Skype at or before the time of their selected interview as applicable. Mock interviewers will wait 15 minutes for in-person interviews and will call twice for phone and Skype interviews if the student does not answer/arrive for their interview promptly. If at that time students have still not answered/arrived 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 timeslot for their interview and/or etiquette dinner, that decision is final.
