    • INTERVIEWS: The CDI is not responsible for hosting interviews after the fair. If a district wishes to interview candidates they met during the fair, that district is responsible for contacting, scheduling, and setting up those interviews with a virtual platform/phone call/etc. We suggest districts come prepared with a blank schedule with interview slots so they can keep organized with who they invited & the times of those meet ups. We ask that you conduct your interviews after the fair, so our students have the equal opportunity to speak with districts. You may start conducting interviews as soon as the fair is complete.

Mock Interview Day


 In 2019 we kicked off our first annual Mock Interview Day. This is an excellent way to meet students as well as brand your organization on campus. We have found that employers have used programs such as this one as an excellent pre-recruiting tool to generate interest in their organization. Throughout their job search, students have often turned to their mock interview employer as a real, prospective employer.

Past employer partners have included: Rock Hill Police Department, Broad River Retail d/b/a Ashley HomeStore, Daimler Trucks North America, Mosiac Pediatric Therapy, Alexander Youth Network, and Keystone Substance Abuse Services

  • MOCK INTERVIEW DAY

      • Date: Wednesday, April 7, 2021
      • Time: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
      • Location: Virtual via Zoom
      • Register: soon
