Employers use video interviewing as a screening tool to help determine whether candidates can communicate effectively, present themselves professionally and answer interview questions with confidence.
There are two types of video interview used to assess job candidates. In the first type, the recruiter will send you a link to an online platform which displays interview questions on your computer screen and allows you to record your responses using your webcam.
The recording is submitted to the employer who then uses the information to determine which candidates will progress next stage of the recruitment process.
The second type of video interview uses Skype, FaceTime or other platforms for live interviews. Prepare for these interviews the same way you would prepare for a face-to-face interview.
