6 in 10 employers now utilize web based interviews for hiring, and this trend will continue to rise.
“Many companies are embracing video interviews, which are often conducted online via webcam, as a way to quickly and cost-effectively evaluate applicants,” said Robert Hosking, executive director of OfficeTeam. “Job seekers can use these virtual meetings to put their best foot forward, just as they would in person.”
- Choose the right location. Conduct the meeting in an area with good lighting, free of distractions or unprofessional items.
- Take a trial run. Ask a friend to provide feedback on how close you should sit to the camera, and adjustments for surroundings.
- Suit up. Don’t assume you’ll only be visible from the waist up.
Dust up your online presence with Interview Stream, an online interviewing tool that students can utilize to practice not only their basic interviewing skills, but also prepare for an actual web based interview.
