How ZoomInterviews Can Help You
Thoughts from current and future MBA students
Check out what MBA applicants and current students from top business schools have to say about ZoomInterviews and the importance of interviewing.
The reason that the interview is such a challenging part of the process is because it is a real time performance, which requires you to act candidly and reveal yourself to a person who's assessing you, which is unnerving. ZoomInterviews would be such a useful tool because it'll demystify that process and allow a prospective applicant the opportunity to be inside the interview room before they are there for real.
Karl, Harvard Business School
The interview is hard and it's challenging and it's intimidating, and the reason is because you have no idea what you're getting into when you get there. It's personalized and they know what to ask you, but you don't know what to expect. ZoomInterviews provides a tool that I wish I'd had when I was applying because it lets you know a little bit more about what to expect and that's really information that's absolutely invaluable.

The admissions process, including interviews, is very challenging in this competitive environment, and if you walk in unprepared or unable to give smooth answers, you're not going to do well. ZoomInterviews is a great resource because you're able to see what it's like in real life and you'll see that there's nothing special or different, which will give you confidence to be able to deliver well when you're in the same situation.
Martin, Haas School of Business
I am a student at the Fuqua School of Business, graduating in May. I found that interviewing in my two years became more difficult as the market became more competitive and so it required actually honing in and perfecting those interviewing skills. Not just being able to have an impressive resume, but also to be able to communicate it in an impressive fashion. I find that ZoomInterviews is a great tool, especially right now because it's real. Its real business students from real business schools that have already gone through the process and know what these interviewers are expecting.

I think interviews are always a very challenging process when you're nervous, when you want to do well and you have an interviewer in front of you. I think ZoomInterviews can give an idea of what questions are being asked, what kind of answers are being given, as well as very little trivial things in terms of handshaking, greetings, saying bye, saying thank you; watching how people do these things will be very beneficial.
Ashley, Haas School of Business
"I think that the ZoomInterviews tool actually provides a very unique experience for applicants to see and learn what real interviews will look like. I think it gives them an edge and an advantage over other applicants in the day of the interview because they've already seen it before, they know what is expected from them and how they should manage themselves during the interview.

I have a lot of experience interviewing over the past couple of years. I think that business school interviews can be particularly challenging because they really require you to bring together all different aspects of your personality into one interview. It's not just your career experience that matters, but it's really who you are as a person and what you're going to bring to the school and the culture of the school. I think ZoomInterviews can really help in the process of getting ready for those MBA interviews because it allows the prospective student to see what an interview might be like and then allows them to practice it beforehand.
Elizabeth, Haas School of Business
"I am very enthusiastic about ZoomInterviews. ZoomInterviews really provides an accurate snapshot into the MIT Sloan admissions process. Applications to business schools are getting more and more competitive and to have an edge on the interview really puts potential applicants at an advantage against others.
1st year student, MIT Sloan School of Management
"Thinking back to my application process, I remember the countless hours I spent preparing for GMAT, writing the essays. The hardest part, however, was getting ready for interviews. Each school has its unique style and asks a variety of different questions. I could never figure out how to focus and prepare best until now. ZoomInterviews offers you the insight and intelligence on how each school goes about conducting its interview process. They don't tell you what to say, but rather how to craft your own message in the most effective way. I wish this tool had existed when I was applying. Good luck on your interviews.
Peter, Chicago Booth School of Business
I moved to North Carolina from Los Angeles where I worked in the entertainment industry and didn't know much about applying to business schools. I think that the interview process is probably one of the more important parts of the application, but it can also be one of the scariest parts. ZoomInterviews can give you a good idea of what to expect from the interviewer and what kind of questions you can prepare for. I think it's a great program and I wish I would have had this a couple of years ago.
Ashley, Duke University's Fuqua School of Business
Getting into a top business school is very challenging. The admissions process requires you to communicate about yourself to the school and tell them why you're a good fit for the school. You communicate through your essays, you communicate through your resume, you communicate through your test scores and of course, you communicate through the admissions interview. It's the admissions interview that's the most challenging for people because it's the most mysterious; they know the least about it. That's where ZoomInterviews comes into play. ZoomInterviews is a resource that shows you what an interview is actually like and how to best prepare for it.
Lloyd, Kellogg School of Management
"Interviewing is incredibly challenging, it's the only time you get to actually go and talk to someone and make an impression about why they should take you. They've seen your application, they've seen your essays, they've brought you here and then you have one shot to differentiate yourself between the fifty percent who are going to get in and the fifty percent who are not going to get in. That's an unbelievable opportunity. To do that well, you have to be really prepared and that's why ZoomInterviews is just an unbelievable resource to really understand what the interviews look like, and to be comfortable when you actually go in there and see what type of questions are going to be asked. I wish this resource would have been available when I was applying here.
2nd year student, Harvard Business School
"I think interviewing is important because it's important to understand what it is that you are selling yourself on, what it is that the other side's looking for and making sure that it's a match for both sides. I think ZoomInterviews helps with that process because it gives you an idea of what to expect, and you don't walk in not knowing what the process is actually going to be like.
2nd year student, MIT Sloan School of Management
"I feel that interviews are changing, that they're actually becoming more important in the application process. I think ZoomInterviews is a great product because it helps you prepare for this integral part of the application process in ways that no other tool can.
Justin, MIT Sloan School of Management
The admissions interview is a very challenging experience, especially for international students who don't know about American interviewing culture. ZoomInterviews can help you by providing you with real life experience of how the interview should be. They also provide a set of tools that can help you be confident. Additionally, they provide you with specific school details about things such as events and clubs that can help you better understand the school.
Nick, Duke University's Fuqua School of Business
I went through many rounds of interviews when I was applying to business schools and even more recently for full time recruitment. I think it's really important to really ace your interview right now because it's a very competitive environment. ZoomInterviews is definitely a great resource because people can directly watch the videos and see what makes for a successful interview, as well as ones that are not so good.
Prianka, Duke University's Fuqua School of Business
"To me, what makes interviewing most challenging is that you only have one chance to make a good first impression. That's why you need to be as prepared as you possibly can. ZoomInterviews does that for you. They show you what the interview process looks like and they help you prepare as best as you possibly can to make that first impression.
2nd year student, Harvard Business School
"You've done all the hard work, the research, the letters of recommendation, but the most important part of the process is the interview itself. I highly recommend ZoomInterviews to get you through that process. They show real life candidates going through real life situations, and they'll show you how to ace the interview. Good luck.
