If you’ve been job hunting recently, you’ve most likely noticed an increase in digital requirements as part of the application process. Employers are now including personality tests, assessments, and other evaluations that help in screening candidates. Startups are busy inventing new tools to digitize the employment process to save their time and costs. Many people believe that the traditional approach of evaluating resumes is archaic and ultimately ineffective when it comes to assessing the qualities and talents of individuals.
Interviewing with AI is becoming more popular as a way to help remove some of these hurdles in hiring top-tier talent. Many people take online Bootcamp to learn more about AI. Let’s go over the specifics of this technique.

How is an AI Interview?
Asynchronous or one-sided video interviews where candidate records responses to pre-selected questions are now conducted by many companies. The replies can be captured at any time and saved for later examination by interviewers.
The algorithms will choose the most promising candidates, and the hiring manager will watch those films to see how they compare to the essential abilities required for the job. They may still bring in good candidates for a face-to-face interview to go over things the video interview didn’t touch on, so you may still have the opportunity to talk with a hiring manager in person.
You may be asked questions via on-screen instructions. These questions can appear in a variety of ways:
- Some questions are sent in the form of pre-recorded videos that you can view. You’ll then have about 3 minutes to record your response.
- Some questions will appear as text, which you will have approximately 30 seconds to read before preparing your response.
- If you are applying for a position that needs writing or design, you should expect certain questions to demand you demonstrate such talents. You will usually be given a prompt to complete the work. They frequently necessitate some outside investigation. If you need to conduct research elsewhere, don’t close the interview window!
Conversely, you may be required to solve logic problems or address coding challenges as part of your software development or data analysis work. You will almost certainly be asked to code in response to a prompt in a language unique to the role.
It’s also a good idea to anticipate being asked to explain why you chose to respond the way you did. The way you solve challenges reveals a lot about your ability in that area, so be prepared to answer questions on how you solved the puzzles or wrote the code.
Present Yourself Better
A handshake and small conversation are among the first things that happen in a standard AI interview before taking a seat and getting down to business. This is a brief opportunity for everyone to relax and set the tone for the upcoming conversation. Because there is no way to establish rapport with a machine, the social part of the interview will be ignored.
This may be a relief if a candidate is easily worried in social situations. Staring into a frigid, unblinking camera lens, on the other hand, may be as unsettling as discussing the weather with strangers. This is why you’ll still need to work on getting in shape before your interview.
- Practicing Succinct, Yet Detailed Answers is an important part of good preparation.
- Make Time to Concentrate

- Examine the Part
- Take Notes
- Practice with Your Equipment
Focus on the Key Areas
Unfortunately, individuals can’t know exactly what each bot has been designed to look for, which can be disheartening while being interrogated by AI. However, there are some things we know about AI algorithms that can help you prepare. You’ll want to spend some time practicing how to wow the bots in addition to conventional interview preparation (researching the firm, analyzing the job description, preparing your replies, etc.). AI can detect thousands of small facial changes that are practically invisible to the human eye. In general, you can expect them to evaluate the following:
- Eye Contact
- Speaking Rate (speed)
- Body Posture
Although the world of recruitment is changing, with proper preparation, you can beat the bots and land the job. We’re here to help you every step of the way, and we can’t wait to hear about your interview successes.
