Record Yourself Answering Interview Questions

Record Yourself Answering Interview Questions

Going into autopilot and answering each question as if you were reading it from a script is a difficult but common event in many interviews.

People become apprehensive because they want to make sure they say the proper things and avoid appearing unprofessional.

It's a normal reaction, but interviewers will frown upon it. When you react to questions on autopilot, you may appear stiffer and more forced than when you respond to inquiries and engage with people in the workplace.

Tell your story with the “S.T.A.R.” method

Tell your story with the “S.T.A.R.” method

The STAR technique is a narrative strategy that begins with a discussion of the issue's context and obstacles, the task or responsibility one held in the circumstance or in overcoming the difficulty, the action they did to solve the situation, and the outcomes.

The action and results will be the most telling aspects of the story, so emphasize how your soft skills, such as communication and teamwork, contributed to overcoming a hurdle and creating positive results.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
