What is the ideal time duration for mock interviews?

Question via Quora

The ideal time duration for mock interviews depends on a variety of factors, including the type of interview, the company conducting the interview, and the candidate's experience and qualifications. As a general guideline, mock interviews should generally last between 20 and 30 minutes.

This allows both the candidate and interviewer to get a feel for the interview process, without wearing out either party. Additionally, it is generally a good idea to have multiple mock interviews with different companies before proceeding with any real interviews. This allows both parties to become comfortable with the interview process and dynamics.

It’s also a good idea to find someone to perform the mock interview with you that has worked for the company you’re applying for. This is because they are familiar with the companies interview process and can help you prepare best.
