If you’re applying for a new job, you may have to go through a rigorous interview process to get it. The presidency is no different—only this time, Jimmy Fallon is putting Hillary Clinton through an actual job interview.

Having already done a mock interview with Donald Trump earlier this month, Fallon quickly settled into the role of the interviewer as he asked Clinton about her strengths and why she wanted to run for president. His questions allowed her to stick to her talking points, but it’s good to know that she’s just as frustrated with autocorrect as the rest of us—even if it was an attempt to avoid a question.

She’ll hear back about the job in about 10 months.
