The Robot is Ready to Interview You Now – Career Webinar

January 17, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The January Monthly Workshop Series of the Middlesex County Office of Career Opportunity will feature Alex Freund presenting on “The Robot is Ready to Interview You Now.” starting 10 a.m. Tuesday, January 17, on Zoom.

First, employers introduced Applicant Tracking Systems to sort and filter candidates based on the text of their resumes. Now, companies are moving further into automation with something called asynchronous video interview (AVI).

A job seeker’s first “interview” might be with a bot – an automated script or program – that uses algorithms and commands to filter out candidates who don’t tick the right boxes, elevating only a successful few for real, human evaluation.  AVI uses artificial intelligence (AI) to sift through applicants’ pre-recorded videos, scanning for key words and behaviors to narrow down the pool of candidates – even ranking people by how well they meet criteria. While AVI may save employers time and resources, it raises a high hurdle in front of applicants.

During the presentation, participants will:

  • Learn how to manage the technical aspects of video communication, such as lighting: background, camera angle, and clear audio
  • Find out what’s important when interviewing with a machine
  • Get tips for improving your current performance.

This Zoom workshop is free. To register, click on the QR code in the flyer or go here.
