LinkedIn introduces new tools for people to prep for their interviews

LinkedIn allows you to prepare for the most common interview questions and get advice and tips from leading career experts, hiring managers, and professional recruiters.

In the coming weeks, the service will also allow users to view short, easily digestible videos to learn how to approach each of these commonly asked interview questions. Premium members will also get exclusive access to expert-approved sample interview answers so you can see how you might approach the top interview questions.

These interview preparation resources will be rolling out on the mobile app as well as on the desktop in English speaking countries starting this month.

As part of the new set of tools, LinkedIn will allow you to privately practice answering interview questions, self-evaluate, and improve by reviewing your recorded answers at your convenience. Later this summer, you’d also get the ability to privately share your recordings with your trusted LinkedIn connections to get feedback, coaching, and advice.

The company claims that they’ve found that 54 percent of job seekers say the interview phase is “moderately to extremely challenging” due to uncertainty and lack of confidence.

While LinkedIn is the primary resource to connect with recruiters as well as research your interviewer and the learn more about the company you’re interviewing with, the new suite of tools will help users prepare more effectively to crush their next interview.
