LinkedIn has announced new tools meant to help job seekers “crush” that next interview.
Applying for a job is a daunting process, and the interview phase is certainly the most challenging. In fact, research by LinkedIn found that 54% of job seekers feel it’s “moderately to extremely challenging” due to two things: uncertainty and lack of confidence.
That’s why LinkedIn is now rolling out new tools to help them prepare for interviews more effectively.
The first is a tool that will “give you a head start on your prep by identifying commonly asked interview questions.”
In the next few weeks, job seekers will be able to watch short videos to help them learn more about how to approach these questions, with Premium members also getting exclusive access to sample interview answers that have been approved by career experts, hiring managers, and professional recruiters.
These interview preparation resources will be rolling out in English-speaking countries this month and can be accessed on Desktop, within the job tab on the job tracker dashboard, an on Mobile, within the job tab under the applied jobs section.
With 52% of successful job seekers in the US spending time creating answers to tough questions they expect to hear, now job seekers can also “privately practice answering interview questions, self-evaluate, and improve” by reviewing their recorded answers, whenever they want.
Later this summer, job seekers will also be able to privately share their recordings with their connections to get feedback, coaching, and advice.
