A mock interview means a replica interview conducted for the training purpose of a candidate. Just like mock calls are done in a typical sales pattern for a new sales executive to train them to speak to real clients, the same way recruiters manage mock interviews to provide practical experience to candidates. The objective of a mock interview is to create a real interview environment for candidates or freshers. It helps them to reduce stress levels, help them to answer strange questions, improve communication skills by practicing and develop interview strategies.
