Interviewing Workshop

Seniors often have to interview with college admissions officers and alumni during the admissions and scholarship selection processes.

At Mentors 4 College, we recognize that a great impression at these interviews can help separate you from other applicants.

We'll help you by letting you participate in mock interviews so you're prepared to ask and answer questions and make a great impression!

  • Date: Nov 2019 (exact date will be decided in October)
