If you’re on the job hunt, there’s a chance your next interview might be via video.
Chris Brown, director of human resources at InterCall, said there are a few reasons for that. At-home staff in IT is more common, plus the technology for handling conferencing and collaboration has vastly improved. And, if you’re going to be talking with a recruiter, it’s a lot more convenient for them.
“It’s a matter of being able to stack up interviews throughout the day and consistently have them run within the timeline,” he said, and the recruiter saves time on little time-sucks like small talk and making sure the candidate can find the office. He also said the no-show rate for video interview is lower than in-person interviews.
