On September 24th, the Zicklin Graduate Accounting Society (ZGAS), Zicklin Women in Business (ZWIB), and GCMC hosted “Student Mock Interview Morning.” Below are recaps from this exciting event:
Our Mock Interview event was a great success! ZGAS, ZWIB, and GCMC coordinated to host this event and provided Baruch students with an excellent opportunity to network with professionals within different industries. I had a very interesting and productive experience attending this event.
I met with a manager from Deloitte who works in the same practice as I interned. She offered advice regarding my future career development and networking skills. Hearing about her experience further inspired me to broaden my understanding of the financial industry and continue improving my communication skills.
Hopefully Baruch will host more mentoring events, and I look forward to contributing to such events through ZGAS. I believe Baruch’s alumni network is a unique advantage, and Baruch students and staff should maximize the impact of our alumni networks.

It was a wonderful experience to get closer to the professionals during the mock interview morning event. On the morning of September 24, if you happened to view the inside of the auditorium, you would be amazed by the magnificent view. More than forty numbered tables were elegantly setup in the room, with two chairs on each side of the tables.
All professionals and students were focused on their conversations, and exchanged thoughts and ideas. I felt so much energy in the room. Professionals paid close attention during the mock interview and provided timely feedback to students. Students were well-prepared and provided strong answers to the interview questions.
Personally, I was honored to meet with one of the professionals. He was extremely patient to review my resume, answer my questions, and provide feedback on my interview skills. The inspiring comments and his precious insights offered me tremendous help to improve myself and become prepared for future challenges.
