Types of Appointments

Mock Interviews (30 minutes)

Please state at the time of booking that you would like a mock interview. If you are booking online, please let us know in comments.

You can book a mock interview if you would like to be questioned under interview conditions for a particular job or position.

Please provide us with as much information as you can about the job you are applying for or the type of jobs you are targeting, for example, job description, person specification. This will help us prepare the type of questions you may receive in the interview. Plus a copy of your CV or application form.

You will be asked to upload your supporting documents when you receive your booking confirmation email. If you do not receive this, please upload stating your appointment date using Ask a Question

We ask that you book this type of interview at least 48 hours in advance (Monday to Friday and excluding weekends) to give the careers adviser enough time to prepare.

Before attending a mock interview, you should look at the Interviews and selection page.

Information about booking telephone and Skype appointments

You can change the type of appointment when you receive your booking confirmation email. You will be asked to provide us with your telephone number or Skype address.

Skype appointments

You will need to make sure you have logged onto Skype at least 10 minutes prior to your appointment time. Your Careers Adviser will have sent you a request in Skype to add you to their Skype contacts list. You must accept this request prior to the appointment. The adviser will then invite you to a Skype conversation at the arranged appointment time.

By choosing this type of appointment you agree to the following:

  • The Careers Adviser reserves the right to terminate the session should they feel the need to do so.
  • You understand that the session will not take place if you are not logged into Skype or do not accept the invitation to the meeting at the appropriate time.

Appointments are time-bound (30 mins).

The Careers and Employability Service guarantee that they will not make a video or audio recording of any Skype sessions and that any text messages sent will be deleted at the end of the session.


As a graduate of this University (and partner colleges) you can access guidance and support from the Careers & Employability Service free of charge for up to three years after your graduation date. You are entitled to a maximum of ten career related interventions over the three year period.
