LinkedIn Is Introducing Tools to Help Members Prepare for Job Interviews

Answers to commonly asked questions, as well as the ability to seek feedback

Nervous about an upcoming job interview? LinkedIn’s got you covered.

The professional network introduced a new suite of interview preparation tools this week, aimed at preparing applicants for the most commonly asked questions and aiding them in practicing their responses.

LinkedIn product management lead Deepti Patibandla and LinkedIn Premium senior engineering manager Himanshu Khurana said in a blog post that 54% of job seekers find the interview phase to be “moderately to extremely challenging” due to uncertainly and lack of confidence.

For millennials, LinkedIn added that 67% of those feeling uneasy about job interviews are pessimistic about their prospects; 37% “would rather spend an entire weekend cleaning out their garage than meet with a hiring manager”; 15% feel nervous enough to throw up before interviews; and 80% have been stumped by questions during interviews.
