Mock Interviews – It’s a Wrap!

The RSU Open Mock Interviews wrapped up last week with a fantastic turnout of 61 students in various degree programs ranging from Freshmen to Senior level. Events like the Mock Interviews are a great way for our students to not only polish interview skills and become more comfortable in that setting, but also to interact with potential employers. In addition, employers get to spend time on campus investing in our students and seeing firsthand the talent that RSU produces. 

The interviews were over a period of three days and made possible with the help of 21 volunteers including several RSU Staff & Faculty as well as distinguished alumni, local employers and corporate recruiters.
