Take Mock Interviews – A Step-by-Step Guide

You’ll see the video interview questions that we tailor-make for your job role. Our AI analyzes your audio and video responses to these questions to assess the quality of the interpersonal skills required for your job role.

 

You may see up to 10 questions and can record your response for up to 3 minutes for each question. You will have a few seconds to gather your thoughts before you start recording your response to a question. We’ve made this experience easy for you by showing the response timer and prep timer in the mock interviews 😊
