Virtual Mock Interviews

Interviewing for field placements can be anxiety-producing. Often students are unfamiliar with the organization or interviewing for a professional position. To help with that, and to get students comfortable with interviewing virtually, we’ve created a virtual mock field placement interview using the Big Interview platform. All UB students have access; they will have to register with their UB email and password.

To access the interview, visit the Big Interview, register for an account or login with your UB email, and select assignments. Enter the code 25303d

Once you log in with your UB account, this image directs students to click on the word assignments.

Students are also encouraged to explore the other resources on the website to help strengthen their skills.
