Abstract

The mock interview is a simulation exercise commonly used to teach workforce preparation skills. The purpose of this creative teaching activity was to integrate the mock interview into a career development course (n= 93) using the Big Interview online platform. Students were positive about their mock interview experience and over 75% indicated that they planned on using the online tool before their next job interview. Interviewing via video conferencing is most likely an industry mainstay since the COVID pandemic. As we prepare students to meet the challenges of this new reality, we must lead by example, leverage cutting-edge technology, and create new avenues for student learning. Implications for supplemental instruction are presented.
