LinkedIn’s Interview Preparation Tool

Tell me about yourself.
Why do you want to work here?
What are your salary expectations?

You need to prepare for these and other typical job interview questions. LinkedIn has a new tool, the Interview Preparation feature, which provides videos, informative text, and tips by experts and hiring managers on how to answer the most common interview questions.  I’ve viewed several, and I’m impressed by the quality of the advice.

It also allows you to privately practice your answers to interview questions, either by recording a video or writing a response. (Your answers are only visible to you and they can be reviewed at any time.) And, you can privately request feedback on the questions you’ve practiced. (Choose a 1st-degree connection who you’d like to review your practice responses, and message them for feedback.)

This feature is available to both free and Premium members, however Premium subscribers can also exclusively view expert-approved sample interview answers.

The Interview Preparation feature can be accessed from the Jobs page:

  • Click the Jobs icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.
  • Click the Track My Jobs button.
  • Click the See All Questions button on the right rail.
