Practice job interviews: learn how to improve your answers and even the tone of your voice
When looking for a job, the first interview can be one of the most stressful moments for all candidates. This is normal. Being subjected to an evaluation where someone else makes the decision about your future career can be a bit stressful.
However, the advancements of technology can make our lives easier. Google has now created Interview Warmup, a tool that allows you to practice and simulate an interview as many times as you want.
To convince the recruiter that you’re the right candidate for the job, you must be sure of yourself. You have to show what you know but you also need to know how to sell those skills to the headhunter. A company needs to know what you will bring to the company to help them achieve their goals.
Practicing will help you be more confident in a job interview and you’ll be better prepared for any possible questions that may come your way.
Google’s new interview simulator gives you the chance to be more comfortable with the interview process and enhance your performance.
