'Prepare your students for interviews with robots'


As we all know, getting that first job after college can often be a bigger challenge for a student than gaining the qualification. The interview process can be daunting, particularly for young people with limited experience of speaking in front of others. Judgements can be formed quickly in this intense environment and it's easy to come away feeling you haven't showcased yourself, your skills and your personality in the best light. Striking up a "rapport" with an interviewer is very important, but something that the less confident college leaver may struggle with – even if they may have all the skills needed for the particular role. So could the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) interview technology help to create a more level playing field in the initial stages of a recruitment process?
