Students needed for online mock interview study

We are a team of researchers at University of Colorado and Purdue University studying automated video interviews. Automated video interviews are increasingly being adopted by organizations and use computers to automatically screen job applicants. We seek to collect data to determine whether such technology can reliably, accurately and fairly assess job applicants.

We are recruiting undergraduates to participate in a mock video interview (approved Purdue University IRB protocol # IRB-2019-56; University of Colorado IRB protocol # 19-0562). The study consists of common selection tests (i.e., personality and cognitive ability tests) and an asynchronous mock interview. 

The study takes about 45 minutes to complete, on average. Full participation requires that you have a webcam (recording both video and audio) and laptop or desktop computer. By participating, you will gain experience on selection tests and automated interviews. For completing all components of the study, you will be compensated with a $10 Amazon gift card.

If you wish to participate, please follow the study link or copy and paste the address into your browser (we suggest you use Chrome or Firefox): https://purdue.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eE4OvqflOB7Z9MV
