In this new “Covid age” we are living in, virtual interviews are becoming more & more common. Rather than a “face-to-face” meeting, the hiring manager & candidate will connect with each other online using video software. You can utilize a computer with a built-in or external video camera & microphone, a reliable internet connection & headphones if desired. Employers are using many different platforms for this virtual process, i.e., Skype, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams.
Here at Frazee, we’ve begun using a simple video interviewing tool called SparkHire.
For many job seekers, virtual interviews can be a bit intimidating, but preparation is key to alleviating any stress you may feel.
