Video job interviews are becoming more common because they’re cost-efficient and convenient. As early as 2012, a survey by the staffing agency Office Team found that 66.7% of human resource managers report that they often use video interviews in the hiring process.
Studies also show, however, that both interviewers and job candidates rate each other lower when they meet on Skype rather than face-to-face. Like any technology, this method has both pros and cons. Use these suggestions to make the most of a video job interview.
These days you may be meeting your next boss online. It’s natural to be a bit camera shy, but strategic preparation will help you light up the screen on a video job interview.
