A woman has been praised for her ingenuity after using artificial intelligence during a job interview.
As the camera gets closer, it reveals an AI app which is generating answers to the interview questions in real time, which she then read out to the panel.
It seems like a brilliant ploy, especially given that interviewers often look for specific answers or points when reviewing prospective candidates.
But despite the tactic certainly providing a useful prompt to make sure that you're saying what the interviewers are looking for, that doesn't mean it's plain sailing.
For a start, she had placed the phone to the side of the screen. Surely a better way would be to put it immediately behind the laptop camera so that she wasn't glancing to the side the whole time.
You'd also really have to sell it, and not sound like you're reading from a script. Newsreaders make it look much easier than it is.
The audio from the video did sound a little robotic, or like someone reading out a passage in an English lesson. Even the person who posted the video commented that she 'needs some practise for sure'.
Not that I'm encouraging anyone to try this, of course.
People seemed impressed by her initiative and expressed their approval of the trick in the comments.
One person wrote: "Interviews are BS anyway.. Good for her!"
Another wrote: "They want robots in companies so robots they will have."
A third said: "Instant hire! she was working smarter...not harder."
But others expressed some scepticism about the technique. One pointed out it's all well and good, until you have to do something in person.
They wrote: "AI is great until you have to be in person and are lost. No different than your first day as a life guard but can’t swim."
Another posted: "When I interview I’ve always just looked for authenticity, always end interviews early if I feel it’s scripted/read off the screen."
Other people pointed out another unusual part of the interview, which was that there appeared to be seven people on the interview panel.
But the big question of course is whether the ploy actually worked.
Replying to one comment, the person who posted video claimed that despite sounding robotic, she was indeed successful in landing the role.
Well, as the saying goes - if it works, it's not stupid.
