Interview Prep

Interview Prep Logo

Interview Prep is a service that provides you with a platform to conduct practice video interviews. You can browse through the Interview Prep database of interview questions or utilize interview sets that Career Services has created, including general interview questions and behavioral interview questions.

Using a webcam, you have the opportunity to see and hear yourself practice both verbal and non-verbal communication skills in preparation for an interview. You can review your own interview responses or submit your video interview for review by a UWW Career Advisor.
