This semester, the CCO is regrettably unable to accommodate mandatory, mock interview class assignments. In an effort to support mock interview class assignments, we recommend the following resources.

Interactive, Mock Interview System:

Big Interview is a virtual mock interview platform available to all Purdue students via their myCCO account.

Students can register for an account on Big Interview to:

  • Access a variety of interviews by category, such as industry (both public & private sectors)
  • Choose which track they prefer to view videos providing insight on how to approach interview questions: Fast Track or Mastery Track
  • E-mail their interview video to a reviewer for feedback

Student Login Instructions for Big Interview:

  • Log into myCCO
  • Click Big Interview on the myCCO Desktop, under Job Search Preparation
  • Register for Big Interview with Purdue e-mail address

Faculty/Staff Registration & Login Instructions for Big Interview:

Do you have a faculty/staff myCCO account?
      If ‘no’, visit and request faculty/staff myCCO access
      If ‘yes’, refer to the Student Login Instructions above to create your Big Interview account in myCCO

      Note: If you have any technical, Big Interview questions, contact Abbey Byrne at or schedule a meeting.

Below is a list of instructors who have successfully replaced their mandatory, CCO mock interview with the use of Big Interview and are willing to speak with you about their implementation approach:
