Virtual Mock Interviews

Virtual Interviewing is Here to Stay

Virtual recruiting has quickly become a mainstay in hiring and we need alumni to help our law students master the art of interviewing remotely! 

The benefits of virtual interviews include convenience, scheduling flexibility, faster hiring decisions in filling positions, increased consistency in the interviewing process, expanded and more inclusive candidate pools, and cost savings.

Tech-Savvy Alumni, We Need Your Help

USD School of Law's Office of Career and Professional Development is searching for tech-savvy alumni to practice virtual interviewing with law students for our Annual Mock Interview Program this July.

This past year has brought many changes to legal recruiting and hiring, including the popularity of virtual screening interviews.  To keep pace with this new trend, our 2021 Alumni Mock Interview Program will also be virtual this year.  Volunteer your expertise and time to help students prepare to present professionally on screen. 

What is Involved?

It is anticipated that more than 150 students will participate, requiring more than 35 alumni interviewers who will each conduct 20-minute virtual mock interviews with up to four students during a two-hour Zoom period.  

The 20-minute virtual interview may be followed by up to 10 minutes of constructive feedback on the student's interviewing style and virtual surroundings. 

Virtual Alumni Mock Interview Guidelines:
  • Access to Zoom with waiting room capability
  • Ability to conduct the virtual mock interview like a real interview
  • Alumni and students are paired for virtual interviews and if an alumnus/a is a no-show, the student will not be interviewed
  • If an alumnus/a cancels within (3) days of the virtual interview, he/she/they may be asked to identify a replacement to ensure the student will still have an interview
