Why would you decline the opportunity to meet people at the firm and demonstrate your qualities if you are interested in working there?

One firm emailed back offering the opportunity to do a mock interview. Is this something I *should* accept/is it important that I do this if I'm interested in said firm? If not, how could I politely decline?


Mock interviews can turn into offers. Of course you do it.

Should've added in that initial post.



You emailed them didn't you? Don't email people if you won't be able to go when they respond with an interview. You asked. They gave. Follow through.

Are you currently in a job where you're also trying to get an offer? If so, you should tread very carefully about flying off to do interviews. But if you're just working for a non-profit, judge, or someone else who isn't going to hire you, let them know you have an interview you need to go on, foot the bill, kill the mock interview, and pray they give you an offer. Best case is you come out of it with an offer. Worst case is you get on their radar early for when hiring rolls around for them. The only loss would be a few hundred bucks (that they could potentially reimburse if they end up offering you a job).
