Career Services Introduces InterviewStream
VALDOSTA -- Students now have an additional resource when preparing for job and graduate school interviews. The Valdosta State University Office of Career Services introduces InterviewStream, an innovative, online provider of pre-recorded and live video interviewing solutions, to its list of available services.
Program users select from over 4,000 practice questions, many of which are industry specific, to create customized practice interviews. Students can then record their interviews from any computer with a webcam and Internet connection.
One of the best features of InterviewStream is its accessibility and mobility. Users can practice from home or at the career center by using any webcam, any computer, anywhere, anytime. Career Services has a computer room dedicated to using InterviewStream if a student does not have a webcam.
There is no limit on the number of times students can practice with InterviewStream, and once completed, students can forward their interviews to a career counselor, faculty member, or anyone else they would like to have review their interviews.
“We are excited about offering access to a system that is so versatile and expansive,” said Kevin Taylor, associate director of Career Services. “We want students to practice with InterviewStream instead of with real interviews.”
Students can get started by choosing the InterviewStream icon at Career Service's webpage. Contact the Career Services office at 229-333-5942 for the username and password, and then follow the step-by-step directions. Students are also encouraged to attend an interview preparation seminar offered through the office for interview training.
