Interview Preparation and Practice
For many people, the most nerve-racking part of trying to find a job is the interview. You may not be able to control how an interview goes, but you can control how well you are prepared.
Big Interview, an online interview practice and preparation module, allows you to conduct an online mock interview and then review it. These interviews can be kept private or shared with a Center for Career and Civic Engagement staff member or a faculty member. Participants only need a webcam, microphone and a moravian.edu email address.
