Interviewing Practice

There are two options Career Services offers for practicing for an interview:

Virtual Mock Interviews - By InterviewStream

InterviewStream is an interactive online video-based practice interviewing tool which uses a webcam to video your practice interview. This tool provides feedback and tips of non-verbal behavior and communication missteps. If you don't have a webcam you can stop by Career Services or sign up ahead of time by calling 541-737-4085 to schedule a time to practice your interviewing skills in the Career Services office. Have a webcam? You can even conduct an interview right now!

Mock Interviews

Mock interviews with a career advisor are designed to replicate the type of interview that you may expect from a recruiter. Schedule a mock interview through our "request a consulting appointment" system.

The day of your mock interview:

  • Please arrive at Career Services early and dress for a formal interview. Bring a copy of your resume and a company/job description or graduate program description for the interviewer.
  • If you are unable to keep your appointment, please cancel the appointment through Beaver JobNet (same steps as requesting your appointment) or call Career Services at 541-737-4085 to cancel or reschedule.
