Google has released a new tool for practicing job interviews with an AI coach called Interview Warmup. The website is part of the company's Grow With Google program and uses speech-to-text and natural language processing to mimic a job interview for five different technical roles or a non-specific position. Grow With Google initially created Interview Warmup for those seeking a Google Career Certificate before opening it to the public. That's evident in the list of careers on the website, including UX design, e-commerce, project management, data analytics, and IT support. After picking a career for interviewing, the AI picks five random questions relating to an applicant's training and experience, situations they might encounter in the role, and their specific knowledge and skills.
When prepping for a job interview, the first place I go is Google. After all, the company's search engine is a launchpad to learn about your potential company, workshop possible questions, and walk away feeling knowledgable and prepared. Now, Google is stepping up its interview game even further--by implementing an interviewing tool powered by artificial intelligence. Before you call your parents for interview advice, check out Google's solution. This piece of artificial intelligence is called "Interview Warmup," a simple yet powerful program you can use to practice common interview questions for different professions.
I'll admit I'm out of practice. The last time I was being interviewed for a job was certainly when America was still sane. Yet I never really prepared for particular questions to be asked. I merely feared that the first question would be: « Tell me a little about yourself. Because that told me the interviewer likely hadn't read my resumé or, if they had, could not remember anything about it.
