I've been practicing my interviewing skills and have been using InterviewStream. InterviewStream provides me with a list of common questions, records my responses through my webcam, and review/critique my responses. I really like interviewStream because after watching my responses, I realized that I needed to work on my body language.

After identifying my weaknesses, I tried to search for videos of the "perfect" interview to use as a model. So far, ZoomInterviews has been the closest match because they use real people. I checked out some of their free preview interviews, but was not impressed. Although, it's probably because I'm looking for the "perfect" interview which only happens in movies?

The interviewers/interviewees are actual MBA candidates/alumns:
Elizabeth - Haas - http://mba.zoominterviews.com/interview ... rviewId=25
Marcus - Columbia - http://mba.zoominterviews.com/interview ... rviewId=32

Elizabeth:
I thought she had a great answer, but her delivery was flat and I lost interest halfway through. I think inflection and emphasis in her voice would have kept me more interested. Her response was a bit long, but it proved she was very passionate about what she wanted to accomplish. Her hand gestures were distracting because they did not match the speed or tone of her voice.

Marcus:
The website said he was poised and showed quiet confidence. I slightly disagree with that assessment. I think he was half poised and half frozen stiff, definitely not relaxed. I only liked the first half of his answer because of his unique story getting to play football in Germany. However, the rest of his answer was boring because he didn't provide enough detail or proof. For example, he [played a season of football... it was amazing, then jumped on a train to teach about 60 highschool kids... then went back to play a 2nd season of football which was amazing because of all the different backgrounds]. There wasn't enough detail or storytelling. He said that the teaching and football experiences were amazing, but then all of sudden lands a finance job (see resume: biology degree). He should have elaborated more on why he left teaching and football for finance. His answer was a canned response with vague descriptions of prestigious finance work experience.

I used to dread behavioral interview questions because I thought my stories were insignificant and boring. Eventually, I learned that I do better when I keep my responses to topics I'm passionate about.

What do you guys think? Am I being overly critical? Did Elizabeth or Marcus come off as insincere? Or is it me? Do I need to adjust my views on interviews?

I think this is probably as good as it gets for sample interviews.
You may search through YouTube or go through CNN's list of interviews in a quest for the perfect one but in terms of Business School Zoom is the best/only recorded option. I may agree as well that I was not thoroughly impressed with the interviewees, which on one hand, gave me more confidence about my skills...
