Practice Interview Area

This is where the rubber meets the road. Here you will be able to continually practice all kinds of interview questions until you come away a lean, mean interviewing machine.

Step 1: Click PRACTICE INTERVIEWS on your navigation bar.

You’ll now see six main interview practice categories to choose from:

GENERAL - this section covers about 90% of the questions you’re likely to get in a job interview.

BY INDUSTRY – here you’ll be able to choose practice interviews from dozens of industries and job roles. This is NOT meant to replace the GENERAL interviews, but only to complement them by offering you some industry specific questions.

BY COMPETENCY – here you can choose from a variety of skill-sets and strengths your interviewer may be looking for in the right candidate.

ADMISSIONS INTERVIEWS – here you can practice interviews by program type and school, including undergrad, grad, business school, law school and med school.

GOVERNMENT – here you can practice interviews for a variety of federal and state jobs.

VETERANS  – here you will find interviews for some of the fastest growing jobs for veterans.

Step 2: If you click GENERAL, you’ll be taken directly to a list of interviewers tailored to a wide array of types of experience. Whether you’re a C-Level exec wanting to polish up before meeting the board of directors, or you’re still in school trying to line up an internship, there are interviews in the GENERAL section to serve just about everybody.

If you click either BY INDUSTRY, BY COMPETENCY or ADMISSIONS INTERVIEWS, you’ll be prompted to select the type of interview you’re interested in.

Step 3: Begin Your Mock Interview – click the PLAY button under your interviewer. This will begin playing an interview question.

To move to the next question you will click (as I’m sure you’ve guessed) “Next Question”. Now let’s take a brief look at the recording function.

Step 4: Recording & Reviewing – the recording buttons should be pretty self-explanatory:

Record – to begin recording. There will be a 3 second countdown to give you a moment to prepare to answer.

 

Play - play back the answer you’ve just recorded for review.

Save – after recording an answer, you’ll have the option of saving by clicking Save

Step 5: Visit MY VIDEOS to review your saved answers. Once an answer is saved you can do a lot with it including reviewing, rating and sharing. All of that is covered in the next lesson.
