Career Services staff members present in more than 100 classrooms each year on a variety of topics. We are happy to come to your class to present on a variety of career topics, or provide a short introduction on our services and resources. We ask you to provide as much notice as possible for presentations to increase the likelihood of booking your first-choice date, but minimally ask for three-weeks advanced notice. To proceed with scheduling your class presentation, complete the online presentation request form.
Please note: Our office can accommodate one class presentation per class with a maximum of two topics covered. In addition, LinkedIn presentations will no longer be an option to request due to offering this information during planned events (see event schedule for more information).
Share Pre-Recorded Content in Your Classes
If you are unable to host Career Services in your class for a presentation, your class is online, or you have already had Career Services come to your class and you would like to share more, consider sharing pre-recorded video presentations. Career Services has created pre-recorded video presentations on a variety of topics including:

Please know that these video presentations provide a general overview of the topics listed above.

Assign a Mock Interview via Big Interview
Big Interview is an online system that combines training AND practice to help improve interviewing techniques and build confidence.
Big Interview offers a variety of tools including:
- Mock interview practice and recording tool
- Written and video curriculum covering the entire job search and interview process
- Mechanism for sharing videos externally/internally for feedback
- Resume curriculum
If you’d like to learn more about Big Interview, watch a few short videos here.
Students will have access to Big Interview through their Handshake account. Instructions on how students can access this resource can be found on this webpage.
One of the greatest features of Big Interview is the Assignments Module. In this module, we’re able to create assignments with custom interview question sets (based on industry, competencies, etc.). Once an assignment is created, it’s given an individual code that students can then put into their Big Interview account. With this code, students can complete a series of mock interview questions by recording their answers and submitting the assignment. Big Interview will utilize artificial intelligence to provide feedback on the student's answers, and the students are able to share their answers externally via email or through a single link (which they can then upload to Canvas). This is a great way to encourage interview practice.
