Major South Korean companies are using artificial intelligence (AI) to screen job applicants, giving rise to an industry to help job-seekers beat these systems.

For example, the People & People consultancy offers classes on handling video interviews using facial-recognition technology. One AI system asks interviewees to introduce themselves, while it identifies and tallies facial expressions and analyzes word choices; other systems employ gamification to test a candidate's personality and adaptability.

Some candidates think it is futile to try to beat AI hiring. University student Kim Seok-wu said, "The AI interview is too new, so job applicants don't know what to prepare for and any preparations seem meaningless, since the AI will read our faces if we make something up."
