A growing number of individuals are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) for assistance in job interviews and interview preparation. In fact, some have successfully navigated their interviews with the help of AI tools. Similarly, Marisa—who goes by @productdesign on TikTok—shared Google's new interview warm-up tool and people are finding it quite interesting. However, they do seem to have questions about voice and data usage.
Marisa begins the video with the overlay text, "I tried Google's new 'interview warm-up' tool and I want to cry." She then goes on to show how to use the tool. Marisa says that one has to first choose the industry to get specific questions. She then asks the users to practice talking out loud mainly because the tool transcribes the answers in real time. Next, Marisa shows how the AI gives feedback on the user's talking points. One could keep practicing the same questions or move on to new ones. The overlay text reads, "Get more comfortable interviewing."
Maris captioned the post, "I used to make flashcards but this is so much better and it's free too." It went viral with about 1.5 million views. People liked the idea but were a bit apprehensive. @adamsgonepostal commented, "Really great feature, but they’re 100% using your voice/data to train ai modes lol." @ariel_babooram expressed, "I tried it. Loved it. Thanks for sharing. Did not know I'd be nervous. Been a while since I've interviewed for a job."
@xxyyzz_7 said, "Thank you I was just saying I need something like this!!" @dmvescapee shared, "Cool but be aware they are 100% taking your answers, stories, and examples to spit out by some other AI tool 'how to answer this interview question.'"
Reportedly, the free AI tool is mainly related to the skillsets taught on Google Career Certificates. These are paid online training courses mainly to put users on “the fast track to jobs in high-growth fields,” according to Dailydot. The industries that are covered include data analytics, e-commerce, IT support, project management, UX design, and cybersecurity, along with a general practice option.
Grow with Google Director Jesse Haines wrote about the AI tool in a blog post, saying, “It’s your own private space to practice, prepare and get comfortable. We’re sharing the tool in its early stages so we can get feedback from the community, find ways to improve it, and expand it to be more helpful to more job seekers.”
In a related story, Leah—who goes by @leah_sahdm on TikTok—shared a perfect hack to create an impeccable resume. All that one needs to do is get help from the popular AI writing tool ChatGPT, which builds an effective resume that gets the attention of potential employers. The best part about the whole thing is that she got a call back for a position from which she had been rejected three times.
She had applied for over 300 positions but found no success before this. She then gave a detailed description of how to use ChatGPT to apply for the jobs she desired. She shared screenshots of the prompts she used to create her resume. The tool asked about her responsibilities and if she worked as a team, and she could also get options to make it sound more technical and professional, and about her achievements or any awards she got in her previous roles.
