Interview Preparation

Presenting yourself well at a job interview is something that comes with practice. We have resources available to assist students and alumni in gaining the skills that are necessary to be successful at a job interview. We have many excellent printed resources that you can view during regular office hours.

As a resource for our students and alumni, we present Perfect Interview. Perfect Interview is an innovative learning tool that you can use to enhance your job interviewing skills and develop an edge over the competition. Perfect Interview creates a compelling and realistic "simulated interview" experience where you are asked challenging questions and must respond, just as you would in a real job interview. You can repeat each question as often as you like, and you can even see examples of how someone else might answer. And, if you get stuck, there's a built-in Interview Coach to offer help.

You can access NEIU's Perfect Interview homepage from the quick link on this page or by clicking here.

Once you create an account, you will receive an email with your password. From there, you can log back into the site and begin your interview practice.
