With a background as a senior manager at ο£Ώ Apple, where I've conducted thousands of interviews, I've realized how significant a targeted and personalized interview prep can be. I've often seen brilliant individuals lose out on opportunities, not for lack of skill or experience, but due to insufficient practice for the interview itself. That's why I've launched Interview-AI.

Introducing Resume AI

Dec. 17, 2022

Why Resume AI?

In the last two years, we've helped our customers improving their professional resumes with our Resume feedback service, and we've gained unique insights into what makes a resume successful.

Recruiters spend an average of 15 seconds scanning through each candidate's resume, so it's important to get your resume right before applying for a job.

We have noticed that many people, particularly those who are non-native English speakers, applied jobs with resumes that are not up to par, resulting in missed opportunities at their desired companies

Utilizing OpenAI's GPT-3 technology, we have developed a sophisticated resume builder to help you differentiate yourself from the competition.

To share our insights and expertise, we are introducing Resume AI, an AI-powered tool that leverages OPENAI's GPT-3 technology to assist you in creating an outstanding resume.

Of course, if you still want us to manually review your resume, feel free to book a Resume Feedback session on instamentor.com


How to use Resume AI

Our tool is straightforward to use - simply input a Situation, Action, Result (SAR) statement and the AI assistant will generate a polished, professional SAR statement for you.

Or you can use AI to rewrite your content to make it sounds more professional.


Any questions or feedback?

please feel free to email us or share in our forum.


What other AI tools will you launch?

Resume AI is just the beginning of our efforts to leverage the latest AI technology to build a suite of career AI tools.

We are planning to expand to include tools for crafting effective cover letters, preparing for behavioral questions in interviews, composing professional thank-you letters, and possibly even negotiating salaries.

Stay tuned for updates on these exciting new offerings and subscribe (check the box) to our product news emails.



To use Resume AI, you agree with our Terms of Service.

We've received multiple requests from our enterprise customers that they want to use our question bank to test their job candidates.

The request has been answered with SQLPad Interview.


Right now only verified hiring companies can purchase a skill assessment session. 

After a successful purchase, a client will receive an email with a set of unique links, which you can forward to your candidate to work on. Each link corresponds to a purchased session. If you've bought 5 sessions, you will receive 5 unique links, where the questions will be hosted.

The client will be notified through email after a job candidate has finished the online assessment, and will be auto-graded, a detailed report will also be sent for further review.

sqlpad has launched an online assessment service for hiring companies.

We've added Python/Pandas support!

Why Python?

In the last few years, companies such as LinkedIn, Apple, Spotify, and Google started to mix the data processing and data engineering interviews by asking skills beyond SQL.

A candidate is expected to solve the same data manipulation and transformation problems using Python.

For example, a candidate is asked to first find the top 3 products from the past sales table using SQL and then answer the same question with Pandas.

Why Pandas?

Pandas is simply the most popular data analysis library in Python that every data scientist candidate is expected to know. 

How to practice your questions in Python/Pandas?

sqlpad.io added python/pandas support for the online coding playground.

To practice 200+ coding questions, simply switch the default engine to pandas. 

Since pandas support is new, we are limiting this feature to our paid customers for now.

If you want to practice those coding questions using pandas, please upgrade to our premium plan.



MySQL is available!

Jan. 26, 2022

Huge win for those preparing for MySQL specific job interviews.

Now you can practice all SQL coding questions in MySQL.

All you need is to switch to MySQL by changing your default database on the top left of the code editor.

You can also switch back to Postgres.

Enjoy and happy SELECTing!
