Experience a Video Interview

Technology has changed the way many employers recruit, with video interviews increasingly used as a screening stage in a recruitment process. Video interviews give you, as a candidate, the chance to present yourself in a way that is more engaging and memorable than just a name on a resume or voice on the phone.

What is a Video Interview?
A Video Interview is a virtual interview where you are required to record video responses to a series of interview questions. Some questions require a spontaneous response, while other may allow re-recording. Most answers are restricted to a time limit, usually around 1-2 minutes per question and employers will expect you to complete the video interview within a specific deadline.
