Big Interview is an online system that allows you to practice your interview skills from anywhere online as long as you have access to a webcam. Big Interview creates a realistic interview experience where you are asked challenging questions that are similar to what you maybe asked in a real job interview. You can use Big Interview whenever you want, and as often as you want to prepare for any employment opportunity. Please note that if you don’t have a webcam, you can schedule a time to use the program at the Center for Career Development & Academic Exploration in the Student Union, Level 2.
