    Fall 2016 Practice Interview Program
    Monday, Oct. 31 - Friday, Nov. 4, 2016 Anderson Center 111/112

    Practice Interview Program Registration Update:

    Due to the number of classes that registered and space availability, registration for PIP is now closed.

    How Does it Work? 

    Faculty who are interested in having their students participate in PIP need to register their classes with the CDC at the beginning of each semester. In order to be eligible for the program, faculty must require their students to participate and have consequences* in place should their students fail to fulfill the requirement. This allows us to estimate the number and type of interview volunteers to recruit to accommodate students’ interests, as well as providing greater accountability for the students to complete the assignment.

    * One participating class has completion of the practice interview and a follow up writing activity count as 5% of the student’s grade.

    Steps for Registering Your Class

    1. Identify the class(es) where a practice interview would be most beneficial and register by Friday, September 16, 2016 for the Fall program (unless space is filled) by submitting the form below. Faculty will receive a handout on PIP to include in their class syllabus. In order to be eligible for the program, you must require your students to participate and have consequences in place should they fail to complete the assignment. This allows us to estimate the number and type of interview volunteers to recruit to accommodate students’ interests.

    2. Decide which of your students will be required to participate and explain the program to them early in the semester. Non-traditional students should only be required to complete the experience if it will benefit their career development and/or their experience in the class. We ask that you consult with your students to determine which ones will be participating and provide our office with an accurate list of names and student ID by the end of the day following the semester's add/drop deadline. 

    3. Incorporate the experience into your class assignments and develop consequences for students who fail to register or complete the experience. Failing to receive extra credit is not considered a "consequence".

    4. Remind your students of the registration deadlines and encourage them to sign up early during registration week for best selection of interview times.

    5. Accept interview evaluation forms as proof of students’ participation in PIP.
