Mock Interviews

February 8, 2018
SFU Surrey Campus
Room 5080


The School of Interactive Arts and Technology would like to invite students to take part in the 2018 Mock Interviews. Through this event, students will refine their communication and critical thinking skills, as well as gain greater confidence for future interviews. Students will get the chance to be interviewed by industry guests for approximately 15 minutes, answering common questions and potentially discussing a portfolio piece.

We encourage our industry partners and co-op employers to participate in mock interviews with our students! Questions about this event? Please contact Stephanie Greaves at
