The Career Planning Center is excited to announce a new online resource that will help students prepare for employment interviews. InterviewStream allows you to practice your interview skills by going through a realistic interview experience where you are asked challenging questions based on the type of interview you have selected. The software records you as you respond to the questions and then loads your mock interview into your own personal InterviewStream account. You can than review it as many times as you want or send it to someone else to review. Check out the video to learn more and start practicing today by creating an account at www.fairfield.interviewstream.com.
