  • What to Expect

    Mock Interviews

    Final and penultimate year students will have the opportunity to take part in mock interviews with HR specialists and industry professionals. Sessions will be 15 minutes in length and will be available between 5.15pm and 7.45pm. Places are limited and only penultimate and final year students who bring a covering letter and resume will be eligible to participate.

    Students are required to bring with them both a general cover letter as well as their resume. Students will be allocated an interviewer at the LIV booth. Students will be provided with feedback on their covering letter and resume. They will also be asked some common interview questions and be provided with feedback on their responses.

    Students cannot register in advance for the mock interviews, however they can book in for a mock interview at the LIV booth on the day. It is strongly recommended students arrive early at the LIV Careers Fair to avoid missing out on a mock interview opportunity.
