      AI have become such a buzzword these days. But it's fine marketing for folks who dont know what exactly AI does, but not fine for tech people for whome you are building this tool.

      Other than recommendations engine. Let's see how you guys are rebuilding the job portal using AI.

    Just some piece of advice it would be a good idea to make at least a couple of interviews for free per person, so that they can gauge the quality of the service that they get before they can actually commit to paying. In which case you could also prove to each person that you personalization can be helpful
    Hope that helps

      That’s awesome. Peer to peer mock interviews are great too, but being interviewed by a google engineer and getting relevant feedback is also helpful to folks applying to FANG-type companies

      That sounds reasonable considering that the interviewers are getting 100% of that (and more).

      You’ll defiantly get more quality out from that no doubt.

      When interviewing.io gives me 3 interviews for free, why will I pay $199 for 2 interviews? FYI, their interviewers are also from FAANG.

      That’s also a great website - but they have a long waitlist of people so only select number of people can interview atm. We’re releasing chesky to everyone soon.

      Making it free is not a sustainable model if you want to serve a lot of people and provide more timing options.

    Great idea?
    What kind of material do you recommend after the first interview? Is it personalized?

    As a feedback, is it possible to opt in for a learning session from the interviewer for the full hour instead of a mock interview. The interviewer can guide through a typical question, expectations at candidate's level, how to approach, when to dive deep, how to deflect tricky questions. IMHO an hour of learning is more valuable than doing a mock that one is not prepared enough.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      Interviews are highly personalized. Candidates create a profile and answer a few questions before scheduling the interview.

      That’s a great idea.
