Introducing Interview Preparation Assistant

Landed your dream job interview but sweating the prep? We've all been there. But what if you could practice with a tireless AI coach, ready to fire interview questions your way 24/7?
Well, no sweat! My team at Credera just tackled this challenge at the PartyRock Generative AI Hackathon by AWS. And guess what we built? An AI-powered interview practice application that uses artificial intelligence to help you master interview questions!
You can watch the demo here or try it here.

Community Impact:

An AI-powered Interview Preparation Assistant can have a significant positive impact on the community in several ways:
  • Increased Job Opportunities: By providing accessible and effective interview practice, this tool can empower individuals of all backgrounds to feel confident and prepared during interviews. This can lead to a more competitive job market where the best candidate gets the job, regardless of their access to traditional interview prep resources.
  • Reduced Socioeconomic Barriers: Interview preparation services can be expensive and inaccessible to many job seekers. An AI assistant offers a free or low-cost alternative, leveling the playing field for those facing financial limitations.
  • Improved Interview Skills for All: Regardless of experience level, everyone can benefit from interview practice. This tool can help individuals refine their communication skills, develop strong answers to common questions, and learn how to handle unexpected situations with confidence.
  • Boosted Self-Esteem and Confidence: Going into an interview feeling prepared can significantly improve a candidate's self-esteem and confidence. This can translate into a stronger interview performance and a better chance of landing the job.
  • Increased Diversity in the Workplace: By removing barriers to interview success, this tool can encourage a more diverse applicant pool, leading to a wider range of voices and perspectives within companies.
Overall, an AI-powered Interview Preparation Assistant has the potential to democratize interview preparation, improve job prospects for a wider range of people, and ultimately contribute to a more skilled and diverse workforce.

Alternative Development Scenario with Amazon Bedrock:

PartyRock makes it incredibly easy to build proof-of-concept Gen AI solutions with no code. If we were to build this Amazon Bedrock we'd most likely use the following solutions:
  • Amazon Bedrock: Claude and Stable Difussion Foundation models.
  • AWS Inferentia: Cost efficient model inference.
  • AWS Lambda: Compute service needed for things like making calls to the models etc.
  • Amazon CodeWhisperer: Generating the code for the user interface of the web app.
  • Elastic Beanstalk: Used for deploying the web app with AWS.
  • AWS IAM: Used to make sure that we principle of least privilege when it comes to IAM permissions in various resources involved.
  • AWS Lex: Allow the user to interact with the app using voice.
  • AWS Polly: It would allow us to convert LLM responses into spoken audio.

Conclusion

Imagine conquering your interview jitters and acing your next challenge with the help of a tireless AI coach. Our interview practice application is a glimpse into the future of interview preparation, where AI empowers everyone to shine. This tool can democratize access to effective interview prep, level the playing field for all job seekers, and ultimately foster a more diverse and skilled workforce. So, the next time you land that dream interview, suit up, and let AI be your secret weapon for success!
