Mock Job Interviews

Since 2014, mock job interviews have been held every year by the Career Support Office in cooperation with the UTokyo Alumni Office.

One-hour mock interviews designed to be like the final interviews for students' preferred companies are conducted, followed by specific advice from the interviewers.

Most of the participant students gave positive comments about these activities.
