Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) March 21, 2012 InterviewStream, the pioneer in video interviews, announced the Top 64 schools that made the cut in the first annual Mock Interview Madness competition in order to highlight the adoption and usage of their product. The school, with the most completed video interviews in March, will receive a flat screen TV for their career center.
First round seeding is based on total number of completed video interviews since the start of the school season (2011-2012). Schools will be reseeded after each round and the next round published will be the Sweet 16. All schools will be eligible to make the next cut based on the total number of practice interviews they complete in March. Campuses are encouraged to engage their students in the competition by promoting video interviewing via popular social media outlets to issue a full court press and practice, practice, practice – interviewing, that is.
Undergraduate and graduate students around the globe use InterviewStream’s video interviewing platform for soft skills preparation and practice interviewing and receive vital feedback from peers and mentors. InterviewStream serves more than 400 campuses including 21 of the top 25 MBA programs, and the volume of completed video interviews has increased on campuses by 66% in the last year alone.
Being an avid sports fan, CEO Randy Bitting thought this was a fun way to promote a little healthy intellectual competition along with highlighting how critical it is for students to prepare for both in-person and video interviews with employers. Bitting said, “We wanted to acknowledge students, professors, and career counselors for their outstanding adoption and usage of our product. We see our product being used in innovative ways to teach students the value of practice interviewing. The more prepared a student is for their interview, the better chance they will have of landing their first big job offer.”
