I'm in a position where I can't accept most positions at this time. Should I still practice applying and interviewing for places, knowing that I most likely cannot accept the offer?

Sarah’s Answer

It’s great that you’re eager to practice applying and interviewing for positions! It’s definitely a valuable skill to hone, and practicing can help you become more confident and polished for future opportunities. However, it’s important to consider the impact on the companies you’re applying to. While it’s okay to explore different options and gain experience in interviewing, repeatedly applying to companies without the intention of accepting an offer can potentially strain your relationship with them, for future considerations. It’s best to prioritize companies where you have a genuine interest and where you might realistically accept an offer if given the opportunity.

That said, you can still practice your interview skills by seeking out mock interview opportunities, attending career fairs, or participating in informational interviews with professionals in your field of interest. This way, you can continue to improve your skills without risking any negative consequences for future opportunities.
