HSPAC Mock Interviews: Practice Your Interviewing Skills

    HSPAC Career Progression Resource Team, invites HSOs to practice their interviewing skills throughout the year! This opportunity provides one-on-one mock interviews with officers who have prior interviewing and supervisory experience. This simulation of an actual job interview will provide HSOs with constructive feedback in a low-stress environment to improve techniques, boost confidence, and reduce anxiety. This practice can be helpful to refresh and improve interviewing skills prior to an upcoming scheduled interview. The goal is to match HSOs with an interviewer from the agency in which they have the interview. For all other HSOs looking to sharpen their interviewing skills, we welcome these requests as well. If you are interested in participating, please contact CDR Vickie Stowers at
