      Pro Tip

      When talking about what you do in your spare time, avoid offering a negative response like, "Spare time - what spare time! Between work and my kids, I am back-to-back with tasks all day."

      Instead, talk about a passion or interest that you have. Your answer should be memorable so that when the hiring managers review your HireVue video submission, they can say, "Remember that's the person who...(insert your interesting hobby or passion here)."

      How to Answer

      Having hobbies and interests outside of work is incredibly helpful for maintaining your health and happiness. Talk passionately about the activities that interest you outside of the workplace. Although you should always be yourself, try to avoid activities that may feel controversial to others, such as hunting.

      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.
