LinkedIn introduced interview preparation tools this week that allow users to view common questions and practice the responses they would give if they were asked these questions during an interview. Our guide will show you how to view and practice these common interview questions within the LinkedIn mobile application.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the LinkedIn app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the briefcase icon at the bottom of the screen to go to the Jobs area.

Step 2: Tap “Saved job(s)” near the top of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “View my applied jobs” at the bottom of the screen. Note: At this time, it appears you need to have at least one saved job on your profile for this “View my applied jobs” button to appear.

Step 4: Tap “Start interview prep.”

Step 5: If this is the first time you’ve accessed this menu, tap “Continue” on the introductory window that appears.

Step 6: Tap the question you want to learn more about and/or practice.

Step 7: Tap “Practice answer” at the bottom of the screen.

Step 8: Tap “Record a video” if you want to practice answering the question by recording a video of yourself speaking, or tap “Write a response” if you want to practice the question by typing a written response.

From there, you can either record a video or type a response, depending on your choice.
