Self-Paced Virtual Practice Interview

Interview Prep is a free interactive online video-based interview prep tool that uses a webcam to record and practice your interviewing skills. Interview Prep 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 practice interview, you can review your responses and save or rerecord them. If you seek additional advice, share your answers with your career coach and discuss other interview techniques.

If you don’t have a webcam, 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!
