Mock Interviews

Mock Interviews

There is no substitute for preparation, and being properly prepared for a job interview may make all the difference when it comes to receiving a job offer. A mock interview is a great way to practice your interview skills in a realistic setting while receiving practical tips for success on the interview process.

Employers that recruit from Hofstra Law routinely comment that students who take part in a mock interview with OCS are better prepared for their real-life interviews than those who do not take part in a mock interview.

OCS offers mock interviews throughout the year. Mock interview sessions are generally 45- to 60-minutes long, with a 20- to 25-minute interview followed by a critique of your performance. And if you’re interested in seeing yourself from the employer’s perspective, OCS offers a DVD-recording option for all mock interviews.

Mock interviews are offered by appointment only, and signing up for a mock interview is easy. Just follow these steps:

  • Sign up for a mock interview via the “Events” tab on Symplicity. Mock interviews are generally conducted Tuesday through Friday at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.
  • If, because of work commitments, you require a before- or after-hours mock interview, please email Doris Urbach in OCS; we will do our best to accommodate reasonable requests for off-hour mock interviews.

Due to National Association for Law Placement (NALP) regulations, 1Ls may not schedule mock interviews with OCS until after Nov. 1 of their first year. However, 1Ls may attend all programs offered by OCS. This regulation was designed to allow new students to become acclimated to law school and comfortable with their studies.
