Online Interview and Negotiations videos

The links below will help you prepare for virtual interviews. There are also a few links about the negotiation process. When you have an interview lined up, thinking about negotiations may seem premature, but the truth is that it’s never to early to start thinking about the salary negotiation process — even if the negotiation itself is a long ways off.

We offer help on our site, too. A mock virtual interview can help you get comfortable with the format, recognize areas for improvement, and practice some answers to difficult questions. Email humanitiesprc@illinois.edu to set one up!
