They are exposed to the type of questions that are most commonly asked and learn the vocabulary usually used in interview situations. Questions that can be anticipated and prepared for are discussed.

Because the participants are actively involved, they come away with a deeper insight into what is expected of them in an interview situation and what interviewers are looking for.
