2. Have a practice anytime
We know that a lot of you find recorded video interviews really challenging. However, they are becoming a common part of graduate recruitment. Which is why we offer access to practice platforms that mimic this style of interviewing.
Even if the jobs you are applying for don't use this method - using our video interview practice software can still improve your technique. It gets you used to speaking your answers out loud. You can also watch yourself back to see how you come across or share the recordings with others to get additional feedback.

3. Book an appointment
You can book an appointment with a Careers Adviser to discuss any concerns or questions you might have about interviews. You can use these 20 minute appointments to have a short interview practice. This isn't a tailored practice interview but gives you an opportunity to practice particular questions you are worried about and get more comfortable with interviews.
