Ace Your Job Interview with AI
Prepare for your next job interview by practicing with an AI assistant pretending to be a hiring manager.
Follow the below steps to let AI help you convert your interviews.
Prompt ChatGPT to play the role of the recruiter for the job you’re applying for.
Prompt: You are the hiring manager interviewing me for [title] position at [company]. Ask relevant questions to me about my experience and qualifications. Ask the first question, wait for my answer, and then ask another.
Pro Tip: Upload your job description and resume to provide ChatGPT with as much detail as possible for highly focused questions.
Start the mock interview. ChatGPT will start with an initial question. Provide your answer and the AI will then ask related, tailored questions.
When you’re done, ask GPT for a clear and comprehensive review of your interview to help you understand what went right and where you can improve.

Unity Software Inc (NYSE: U)
Unity is a game engine that's been around since 2005. It was first announced at Apple's WWDC and was originally just for Mac OS X. But over the years, it's expanded to work on desktops, phones, consoles, and even virtual reality.
The engine is used for games including Pokémon Go, Call of Duty: Mobile, Beat Saber and Cuphead, etc.
Revenue for Unity Software grew by 48% year-on-year to $1.81 billion in the 12-months ending July 30, 2023.
Let’s dive into the bull and bear cases for the Unity Software stock.
Unity is still the go-to game engine, the advertising business is getting better, the ecosystem is growing outside of gaming, and margins are picking up.
Unity is used to make over half of all mobile, console and PC games in the world, and it's got a two-pronged advantage: it's the first mover in the market, and it lets you create your games for free.
It also helps developers make money by integrating ads into their games.
It's been growing its ecosystem outside of gaming with acquisitions like Game of Thrones special effects, digital twins, AR/VR apps, and more.
Unity’s stock looks expensive, it has recently alienated many developers with sudden changes in fees and Insiders are dumping a lot of stock.
Unity expects revenue growth of just 5% to 9% in 2023, compared with 25% growth on a reported basis in 2022. It's well below its goal of generating 30%+ revenue growth over the long term.
Unity insiders don't seem to expect a recovery.
In the past three months, they have sold four times the number of shares they bought.
Overall, the advertising business is getting better, the ecosystem is getting bigger, and the margins are getting better. But the organic growth is slow, the stock isn't cheap right now, and the management has made some bold moves.
