In response to all facets of job searching going virtual due to COVID-19, LinkedIn is introducing new resources including the job interview itself.
LinkedIn introduces a test version of a new video introduction feature, as well as an AI-powered tool that provides input on the spoken word responses from the users.
Details of these new tools, here.
LinkedIn is testing a feature designed to boost the ability of the applicants to give the hiring managers a good first impression.
LinkedIn reports: “We’ve found that 65 percent of people believe that the impression you make online is just as important as the one you make in person, but it can be challenging to show your soft skills to potential employers when you’re not in the same room.”
LinkedIn’s new video introductions feature allows hiring manager to request an introduction as part of the hiring process.
The candidate may then either respond by recording an introduction or by providing written copies.
LinkedIn brings instant AI-powered response to its interview preparation tools which can help candidates prepare for specific screening issues.
“When it comes to the interview, more than 50 percent of people say they lack confidence,” LinkedIn says.
To help candidates respond more effectively to questions, the instant feedback tools will listen to the answers from the people and evaluate the quality of the message.
Users can record answers from the practice and send them to the AI feedback tool to get an evaluation of their response delivery.
The tool’s feedback is intended to help people develop their interview skills and to talk.
