Job interviews are something that many people dread. But one woman has been praised for her ‘genius’ – albeit rather cheeky – hack to help her nail her interview
The video was posted to TikTok by Aidan Cramer, 30, from London, who filmed his housemate during a job interview.
‘Caught my housemate cheating during a job interview!’ he quipped in the caption.
In the clip, the woman is asked by an interviewer to describe a situation where she faced a challenging problem at work and how she went about solving it.
As the interviewer speaks, the question appears on the smartphone screen in real-time, before a reply pops up.
‘Certainly. At my previous job, we encountered a sudden drop in website traffice,’ she calmy replies, reading off her smartphone.
‘I took the initiative to diagnose the issue, gathering a cross-functional team of developers…’ she adds, before the video cuts off.
The tool the woman is using appears to be AI Apply, which is described by its developers as an ‘intelligent job assistant’ that uses AI to streamline the application process.
Users can choose from various options, including a cover letter generator, CV tracking, and an ‘interview buddy’, which is what appears to be used in the video.
According to AI Apply’s website, users can upload their CV, before joining their video interview with the interview buddy open on their phone.

Several impressed fans have taken to the comments on TikTok to praise the ‘genius’ hack.
‘Interviews are BS anyway.. Good for her!’ one user wrote.
‘Getting a job in this day and age is stupidly more difficult than it should be. I’ll take tips from this gal,’ another added.
And one joked: ‘She deserves the job for innovation. They will be lucky to have her.’
WILL YOUR JOB BE TAKEN BY A ROBOT? PHYSICAL JOBS ARE AT THE GREATEST RISK
Physical jobs in predictable environments, including machine-operators and fast-food workers, are the most likely to be replaced by robots.
Management consultancy firm McKinsey, based in New York, focused on the amount of jobs that would be lost to automation, and what professions were most at risk.
The report said collecting and processing data are two other categories of activities that increasingly can be done better and faster with machines.
This could displace large amounts of labour – for instance, in mortgages, paralegal work, accounting, and back-office transaction processing.
Conversely, jobs in unpredictable environments are least are risk.
The report added: ‘Occupations such as gardeners, plumbers, or providers of child- and eldercare – will also generally see less automation by 2030, because they are technically difficult to automate and often command relatively lower wages, which makes automation a less attractive business proposition.’
