On the one hand they aren’t really. If you know what you’re doing.
But most of us are not broadcasters. And the only video calls we ever really make are with our mates, and never really trying to impress a new employer.
And how many interviews have you ever had to do with the family running around in the background? Or with the stereo blaring from upstairs?
Because many of our jobseekers have to overcome these hurdles and more. How do you get the lighting right? How do you dress? How do you lead and guide the conversation rather than a series of grunts and Yes’s and No’s?
We know that the online coaching that we do makes a massive difference. So do our jobseekers.
In any interview first impressions count. An online interview is not an informal chat – get it right, understand the principles involved and you will be way ahead of the competition. And whatever background or experience you have, you will stand a much better chance.
In today’s market, as we all try to keep apart from each other, recruitment still has to go on. And if you can master the online interview then you will find yourself back in work much quicker than most.
