Mock Interview: Through SHIP Career Connection, students can practice their interview skills by responding to pre-recorded questions with their webcams. Simply login and select “Mock Interview” from the list of options on the right-side menu bar. There are many interviews on the website, so students can choose one relevant to their major or the position they are applying for. After completing the interview, students will receive feedback from a CMPDC staff member, and can schedule an appointment to review and practice answers in person.


Career/Major Exploration Tools

The CMPDC utilizes Career Coach which allows students to browse and discover majors and in-demand careers and education based on interests! To access this resource, click here.

We also use career assessment tools, including FOCUS 2, to provide students with a self-paced career assessment that gathers information about unique skills, values, abilities, and interests and combines them into career and job options.
