Mock Interview

Having adequate technical skills just won't cut it in today's analytics job market. You need to be able to stand out as someone who is reliable, communicative, and thoughtful. Campus career center coaches often don't have the dedicated time to partner with executives to understand and deliver insights that hiring managers are looking for in the interview. You may get some interview basics, but you are not always going to be coached to be persuasive or apply elite techniques. Candidates at all levels from high school to mid-career or even the most seasoned must be ready to express themselves clearly and also distinguish themselves from the competition based on their genuine strengths.
