Job interviews are fascinating. Whatever the role, level, or industry, job interviews are learning experiences – for the interviewer and the job-seeker. Having said this, one of the most exciting observations in recent times has been watching how ChatGPT can prepare competent candidates for interviews.
With its human-like text and data-driven insights, the AI Chatbots can provide job seekers with valuable inputs on how to crack the most challenging job interviews. Here are some of the steps shared by Nirupama VG – MD Ad Astra Consultants that can help beginners in cracking interviews.
1. PROMOPTING QUESTIONS AND PRACTICING ANSWERS
Answering questions effectively is an essential aspect of an interview. ChatGPT answers prompts with role-related interview questions. The bot then helps candidates to draft intelligent responses using its superior conversational capabilities. Candidates can further refine their answers to show clear thought leadership.
2. FEEDBACK ON RESPONSES
Candidates can request feedback on their answers. Capable of evaluating responses, ChatGPT provides insights on areas of improvement. It can highlight vague or weak parts of a candidate’s response and suggest ways to strengthen it. This feedback mechanism acts as an invaluable support to job seekers.
3. RESEARCH THE COMPANY
Knowing as much as possible about a company is an important asset for a candidate. ChatGPT aggregates information about the company from different sources, sharing insights about its history, values, culture, products, services, and customers.
4. DEVELOP CANDIDATE QUESTIONS
Asking thoughtful questions during an interview is a great way to show engagement and interest in the role and the company. With ChatGPT, candidates can generate relevant and insightful questions such as a company’s plans, team dynamics, or any challenges they may be facing.
5. REFINE LANGUAGE AND TONE
ChatGPT has been helping candidates refine their language and tone, ensuring they sound professional, confident, and articulate. Job-seekers experiment with different sentence structures and even learn new vocabulary to enhance their communication skills.
Candidates can instruct ChatGPT to simulate mock interviews. For example, type “Conduct a mock interview for a Data Analyst role”, and ChatGPT will generate a list of interview questions in a simulated setting.’
Using ChatGPT to practice for a job interview is much like attending a job counselling course. It brings essential topics into focus and builds knowledge as well as confidence. Candidates feel more prepared. So, candidates know what is expected of them when the interview comes around.
There is no doubt that ChatGPT can be a handy interview-acing tool. However, it is not a substitute for attitude or experience.
