RALEIGH, N.C. - Nearly 40 Campbell Law students participated in the Campbell Law Career & Professional Development Center’s third-annual Mock Interview Day on Friday, Jan. 31. Each student was paired with one of seven participating employers, five of which earned their juris doctor at Campbell Law, in an effort to improve their interview skills prior to seeking professional employment. Each participating employer volunteered their time to help better prepare the next generation of Campbell Law attorneys.
“Campbell Law’s mock interview program is an important exercise for our students because it provides them with a platform to improve upon and enhance their interview skills with actual practicing professionals in a real-world setting,” said Campbell Law Career Center Director Julie Beavers. “Following the interview process our students receive honest feedback on how they can improve their interview techniques, and our interviewers offer a glimpse of what employers are seeking from law students as they look to hire summer interns.
“We are fortunate that so many members of the local legal community routinely offer their time to provide such a valuable and needed learning opportunity for our students.”
The Campbell Law Career Center also hosted a networking luncheon as a part of the program. The luncheon provided students an opportunity to get to know each participating interviewer, representing several different types of law and employment throughout North Carolina.
