      Pro Tip

      Work ethic describes the moral principles that you apply to your work. When the hiring company asks about your work ethic in a HireVue interview, they are looking for specific wording to which they can relate.

      When you read the company's job posting, check for the mention of particular principles and values. You can also search the company's website for a values and mission statement. When you respond, clearly outline how those principles align with your work values.

      How to Answer

      After outlining your work ethic, share an example of when you demonstrated those characteristics and traits in the workplace. Storytelling impacts the hiring managers because it provides evidence of your ethics and personal character.

      If you want to tell a story about your ethics in action, you can form one using the STAR framework (Situation, Task, Action, Result).

      What You Need to Know

      The average HireVue interview takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. This one-way video interview typically includes 3-5 questions. Depending on the hiring company's parameters, the HireVue platform will generally give you 30 seconds to prepare a response and up to 2 minutes to answer each question. It's important to note that HireVue stops recording as soon as your time limit is up, so it's better to run under time than overtime.
