CCE offers Big Interview to Students and Alumni- Launches December 2018

We are excited to offer you Big Interview, an online interview practice platform that will help you prepare for interviews and gain confidence in your skills. We are launching our inaugural year of service with the interview prep system this December.

FREE, UNLIMITED INTERVIEW PREP FOR COLUMBIA STUDENTS

We are providing Columbia students access, at no cost, to Big Interview- this includes interview training videos and databases of behavioral questions based on selected industry, role, skills, and competencies. What is also great about the tool — you can practice wherever and whenever you want!

HOW BIG INTERVIEW CAN HELP YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR NEXT INTERVIEW

You should always feel confident entering an interview. We recognize that interviews can pop up with little notice, leaving you stressed about preparing. Big Interview is accessible from any computer at any time of day. You can access the platform and see hundreds of interview questions sorted by industry, role, skills, and competencies.

The user-friendly platform, accessible on desktop or mobile, allows you to record yourself answering questions. You can review your videos yourself to identify areas for improvement, work with a career counselor in an appointment, or send to friends, mentors, and family for feedback. 

Where CAN I ACCESS BIG INTERVIEW?

Columbia students in Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies, Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, and School of the Arts can access Big Interview through the Subscription Resources section of our website. 

WHERE TO START WITH BIG INTERVIEW

We suggest that your first step be to explore the platform and the questions through some self-review. Try some sample questions and critique your response content and delivery.

Once you feel ready for more feedback, you can have your videos reviewed in an appointment with one of our career counselors. You can also share your videos with friends, family, and mentors. The reviewer does not need a Big Interview account to see the videos and send feedback.  

We encourage students to be good digital citizens. Please be thoughtful about who you share video content with online.
