Do you have an upcoming interview for a career opportunity or graduate/professional school?

 

If so, then be sure to use Big Interview to learn what interviewers are looking for and practice interviewing. Big Interview combines training and practice and gives cutting-edge, industry-specific, interview advice that is rooted in real-world scenarios and hiring practices.

 

  • Begin by reviewing some of the video lessons or browsing the question library to learn more about types of interviews, common questions, and creating effective answers.

 

  • When you are ready to practice, select the mock interview tool under the Practice tab. 

 

  • After recording, you may request feedback on a limit of two videos per day. Just click the blue Share button. Enter interviews@umbc.edu under “e-mail the following people.” Also consider sending it to supervisors, family members, and mentors for review.

 

  • If you would like additional assistance, you can schedule a virtual appointment with a Career Advisor through your UMBCworks account. 

 

Interviewing is a skill and, with practice, you too can refine your answers and feel more confident and natural during your interview.
