Try the free online interview practice today
When we launched the beta version of adnexio in February 2019, we gave access to jobseekers to try the system.
We wanted to familiarise jobseekers with the concept of doing an online interview with a machine. After all, we needed to collect enough interview videos to test NEX's accuracy.
To validate that NEX was able to assess and rate candidate's interview performance competently, we compared NEX's score with a human recruiter's score.
After one month, we noticed a glaring problem with the exercise. Only 20% of job seekers who created an account with adnexio completed the online interview. Most of them stopped when they reached the final stage, i.e. the online interview.
It was evident that the majority of job seekers in the market did not think they were ready for an interview with a machine. If they were unwilling to go through an interview with a computer, they must be terrified in a real interview with a recruiter.
Overcoming fear of interview
Although the job seekers' reluctance to go through an online interview delayed our work significantly (because we had to wait longer to have enough online interviews for training our algorithms on), it was also a validation of sorts.
We now have empirical evidence that the fear of a job interview is a real stumbling block for many job seekers.
The fear cannot be downplayed, and unless they overcome the fear, they may find it hard to get a job that matches their qualification.
NEX is here to help
You can do an interview practice as many times as you like. NEX shall ask you random questions, and you can see how you perform in each interview practice.
When you feel confident enough, you can start the interview at your convenience.
Everything in life takes practice. If we practise the skills of our favourite computer games, we can do the same for a job interview.
