Since the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus Covid-19, and following the start of the 21-day National Lockdown imposed by the Government, many companies have put recruitment on hold for all their open positions. However, as we discussed in our last Twitter chat, there are still companies advertising jobs and actively recruiting to fill those vacancies. If you apply for one of these jobs, and your application is shortlisted, then you might be invited to attend a video interview.
The technology that enables recruiters to interview candidates over the web via video has been around for a long time, but even now it is not commonplace for jobseekers to be asked to attend a video interview rather than meet the recruiter face-to-face. Now that most recruiters are working from home, and jobseekers are also under lockdown, video interviews are the only way that the two can ‘meet’ to discuss a job opportunity and determine whether the interviewee is the best fit for the role.
Therefore on this week’s #JobAdviceSA chat we are going to give advice on how to prepare for a video interview to improve your chances of being successful. Here are the questions:
Q1. What should be in your Video Interview Preparation Plan?
Q2. What do you need to research to help you prepare for a Video Interview?
Q3. How best should you prepare yourself for a Video Interview?
Q4. What is important for you to do during and after a Video Interview?
You can answer any of the questions using A1, A2, A3, etc, or ask any other questions you might have, using the hashtag #JobAdviceSA.
We look forward to chatting with you!
