Practice your Interview Technique with the ‘Abintegro Interview Practice Simulator Package’


Interviews can be daunting, even for experienced professionals. With the ‘Interview Simulator’  package from Abintegro Limited, students can test themselves with interactive questions and best practice answers from experienced professionals to build up their confidence and competence.

What it includes:-

  • Practise hundreds of interview questions from leading hiring managers, in a time-pressured environment, to build confidence and competence, giving the greatest chance of interview success.
  • Take a mock interview, where auto-generated questions, designed to mirror the structure of an interview, test you in a time pressured environment. Answers can be recorded in audio and video for review, and notes can be quickly downloaded into preparation packs.
  • Browse 101 of the most trusted and important interview questions in the simulator, helping you to understand what’s important, what employers are looking for, and the top DO’s and DON’Ts of all our questions.
  • Watch videos of experienced professionals giving their honest advice about why they ask these questions, and how good answers differ from poor ones.

Above all, the interview simulator is there to help you feel confident and ready to answer questions thrown at you in an interview.
