Big Interview Testimonials
I thought it was an amazing tool that I will definitely use in the future. I learned that even after a semester of not doing any interviews because I have an internship really makes you rusty. It was cool how there are so many different options for types of interviews and difficulties you can practice with. Thank you for making this part of the class as I had no idea about this.
There are two key things I learned from conducting a virtual online interview. First, preparation is key. When I was not prepared for a question it was hard to adequately convey my response. I did not have any specific details off the top of my head to answer it and sound intelligent. Preparation gives me analogies, stories, and specific attributes about myself that I want the company to know about. Preparation helps me maintain steady eye contact as well. Secondly, practicing this online interview helped me reduce stutters or "umms". Instead of thinking of what to say, I knew what I wanted to say when they asked a question I was expecting. It also helped me reduce the amount of time it took me to answer the question fully. It is important to be precise and eliminate redundant talk. Practicing helped me convey the point in an appropriate time frame.
First of all, just learning about the fact that we have access to an amazing tool like Big Interview was fantastic. I had to do an online interview for [company omitted] last semester, and it was extremely awkward. This resource was and will be so helpful in practicing for interviews, both in person and online. It helped by giving the typical interview questions, but also providing sample questions from different fields. I learned that the arsenal of questions that interviewers have is quite large and different from person to person, so having general strategies and grouping similar questions together will be important.
The interview I chose to take part in was the general interview with the ten basic questions that are asked in most interviews. I feel like filling out the interview worksheet beforehand really helped me out a lot as I went through this process because a lot of the questions that were asked also appeared on that interview worksheet. [Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for worksheet.] Therefore, I feel like I was fairly well prepared to answer the questions that were being asked. I also found it very helpful to play back the recording of myself answering the questions, as I could see moments where I fumbled with my words and moments where I really excelled. With the moments where I did not do very well, I went back and retried the interview answer until I became very good at answering the question in a clear, concise way. I had a very positive experience with this online interview and I plan on using it more and more as I prepare myself for a real job interview once I graduate from Cedarville.
