INTERVIEWING

Interviewing is an important part of the career development process. Mock Interviews are simulated interviews, designed to develop or test the communication skills of the interviewee. We offer a Face-to-Face mock interview service with a Career Center staff member to help you prepare for professional interviews.

Virtual Mock Interview

InterviewStream is a free interactive online video-based practice interviewing tool which uses a webcam to record and practice your interviewing skills. InterviewStream helps prepare you for various scenarios, including initial screenings, behavior-based questioning, and panel interviews. You have the ability to select the type of questions you want to answer, as well as the recording format: audio and video, audio only, or written.

At the conclusion of your mock interview, you can review your responses and save or rerecord them. If you seek additional advice, share your responses with your career counselor and discuss other interview techniques.

If you don’t have a webcam, you can call 561-297-3533 to schedule a time to practice your interviewing skills in the Career Center. Have a webcam? You can conduct an interview right now!
