The Mock Interview Programme (MIP) helps you prepare for a first-round job interview by giving you the chance to be interviewed by a real employer and get feedback on your performance. Simply submit a CV you have previously used when applying for a job.

Why apply to MIP?

Acing your job application and interview goes a long way in securing your dream job. MIP gives you a chance to practise how to apply for a job as well as your interviewing skills. A mock interview also helps you review your answers to common interview questions while assessing factors like your outfit, mannerisms and body language. As the saying goes: “practice makes perfect.”

Who should apply?

MIP is aimed at all registered UCT students across all six faculties.
