Big Interview

Big Interview is an online mock interview tool which enables you to practice and refine your interviewing skills in the location that is convenient for you

Who can access it?

This tool is available to registered students, through their CareerEngine accounts.

How does it work?

  • Using a webcam, students respond to pre-recorded interview questions while practicing verbal and non-verbal communication skills
  • Following the online job interview simulation, students can evaluate their behavior and responses and/or request an ECS Advisor to review their submission. To request feedback, the student must share their response with eng-ecs@osu.edu
  • If requested, an ECS Advisor will provide constructive feedback on the performance.  Feedback will only be provided on Custom Sets
  • For a quickstart guide, go to your CareerEngine account under Resources>Document Library.  Then keyword search “Big Interview”
