Big interview prepared me for a very strenuous interview process. It's a very competitive internship and I was one of three candidates chosen out of a pool of 40 and undoubtedly Big Interview prepared me for the process. I wouldn't be here today if it hadn't been for Big Interview."

“Big Interview is really intuitive… amazing for preparing students”
UC San Diego Career Office

“Big Interview helped me calmly get through the interview which later allowed me to accept the job that I had as a Security Operations Intern at Wells Fargo.”


“When students go in to use the tool, I find that they are reporting that they are advancing in their interviewing abilities because of the ‘theory’ to ‘practice’ experience. They learn the theory and from there they can actually practice.”
