Mock Interviews in the Workplace: Giving Interns the Skills They Need for Success
Huss, Robyn; Jhileek, Tasnuva; Butler, Judy
Journal of Effective Teaching, v17 n3 p23-37 2017
How many people have walked out of an interview wishing they could turn around for a re-do? Mock interviews can provide interns with demonstrations of the types of inquiries that can be expected in a real interview as well as practice in responding to those questions successfully. A simulation that occurs in a high-stakes atmosphere with the potential for real consequences is an even more beneficial practice round. This study was conducted with secondary education pre-service teachers during their final semester as student teaching interns, and the mock interviews took place with administrators in their assigned schools. Results are based on anecdotal evidence and surveys that were offered after the mock interview activities were completed.
