VIPS allows students an opportunity to practice their interviewing skills on-the-go. The main purpose is to give the student valuable experience and practice in developing interview skills. The self-produced mock interview is stored and accessible on-line, therefore job seekers and students can solicit feedback and constructive criticism from career services faculty, alumni, friends, family and employers about their performance. Practice, practice and more practice is the key to successful interviewing.

Practice Makes Perfect
Successful interviews require confidence. Confidence is acquired through knowledge and practice. University Career Services (UCS) sponsors practice interviewing sessions (or mock interviews) with staff and occasionally professional recruiters. Students registered with UCS through Handshake can start their practicing via Virtual Interview Practice Stream (VIPS). Complete VIPS first, than schedule a feedback session with a staff member. After you have received feedback and are ready for an in-person mock interview, your counselor will schedule a face-to-face mock interview appointment.
