Friday Fave: Interview Prep Resources

Happy Friday, Jumbos! Do interviews make you nervous? Do you feel like you’re going to be judged by your interviewers, a la the harsh judgment of Dwight Schrute? If so, you’re not alone! 

That’s where our interview prep resources come in. Feel more confident and prepared for your next interview by taking advantage of these 4 things:

  1. Preparing for Interviews section of the Career Center site — you’ll find tips for before, during, and after your interviews, and you’ll also see sample questions commonly asked in interviews.
  2. Big Interview — use the Big Interview platform to watch short interview training videos and practice your own answers to sample questions in virtual mock interviews.
  3. Mock Interviews with the Career Center — in addition to using Big Interview, you also have the option to meet with a career advisor for an hour-long mock interview session, whereby you’ll be able to practice answering questions and have an opportunity to talk through your answers with an expert.
  4. #Adulting: Interview Success — Before, During & After on March 30 — attend this program and you’ll learn how to feel more confident and improve your professional presence in interviews, hear ways to adapt your current techniques to a Zoom environment, and watch an interview role play (complete with solutions for the most common mistakes students make!).

Have a wonderful weekend!
