Mock Interview Day
On March 4th, RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) organised the "Mock Interview Day" workshop, which focused on giving the participant students a new insight on the interviewing process. The mock interview was conducted by human resources specialist Lorika Tahiri, HR Manager at KFC Prishtina, and Fadil Sahiti, RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) Lecturer.
A mock interview, also known as a practice interview, is a simulation of an actual job interview. It provides job seekers with an opportunity to practice for an interview and receive feedback on your interviewing skills. A typical mock interview is a practice job interview that helps you learn how to answer difficult questions, develop interview strategies, improve your communication skills, and reduce your stress before an actual job interview.
The students were very interested in the interviewing process, they gained new experience for their future interviewing possibilities. Our students Vesa Stavileci and Olt Jaku shared their experience being a part of this workshop:
During the interview i felt very comfortable, especially with you and Lorika. I felt like talking with some close Professors which are like friends but wiser. It was effective because I now know how interviews go and the kind of questions that we are asked while being interviewed. The structure of the interview seemed well. The conversation was taking its flow and it felt very casual, which is the way it should go (in my opinion). I loved the process. It felt good discussing the different ways I try to motivate myself and others and the other things discussed. I liked the questions that I was asked. It is important to know someone on a personal level before hiring them.
The mock interview was effective in allowing me to highlight my skills and teaching me the correct way of introducing my abilities.
Overall it was a good experience that’ll allow me to grow professionally.
RIT Kosovo (A.U.K) Co-op & Career Office is always close to students and trying to offers them all the opportunities and help them gain the experiences that are crucial for their future.
