Other advice support

Interview practice

Practise your interview skills before doing the real thing with InterviewStream – an interactive online video interviewing tool.

If you have an interview coming up, you can book an interview practice session, including detailed feedback with one of our advisers. The appointment can take place face-to-face, over the phone or via Skype. You can book by visiting our mock interview bookings page.

As part of the booking process you will need to email a copy of your CV or application form and details of the job you’re applying to, in order for the adviser to make suitable preparations for your appointment.

We also run interview workshops during term; book your place on an interviews or assessment centre workshop via Careers Connect.

Callum Smith "The Careers Network gave me a huge amount of help in my initial steps to securing employment after graduation with the use of their one-to-one CV guidance meetings. Before going to one of these, my CV was plain and didn't stand out much. After sitting down for 20 minutes with an adviser, I was able to articulate my skills and qualities incredibly more efficiently. This has enabled me to transfer this into other applications (as so many are now purely online with no CVs) and also in my own Personal Development Plan in my current role.

Since graduating with a 2:1 BSc (Hons) International Business, I undertook a Graduate Internship at Deutsche Bank, which I found and successfully applied for through the Careers Network online job board. I am now on a two year Government Development Scheme at the Home Office."
