InterviewStream – Practice interviewing. Anytime. Anywhere.

InterviewStream is a web-based mock interview program that is offered free to our customers to assist them with improving their interviewing skills.

This easy-to-use online program uses on-screen, recorded interview scenarios developed by employment professionals. The program allows users to record an interview and re-watch it or submit it to the website where a workforce advisor can view the video and provide feedback.

To use this free resource, visit the NYS Department of Labor InterviewStream login page. Get started by creating an InterviewStream account. View the InterviewStream Customer Login Guide for assistance.
