Whether you’ve been invited to a video interview or you’ve submitted your application and looking ahead at the next stages, you’ll want to know what to expect as well as some hints & tips on how to submit the best video interview you can.
So I suppose the first question to answer is what is a video interview? Put simply it is a question and answer interview that takes place using a laptop or tablet. One thing to note is that although it is an interactive interview, it is not a live video chat.
How it works: If you are invited to a video interview, you will also be sent a link to our video interview provider Sonru. You will create an account and then be given access to the appropriate video interview for the role you have applied for. There will be a welcome page with some instructions and hints and tips before conducting your interview. Questions will appear in a text format on the screen after which you will be given a timed window to record your response. Once a answer has been recorded you will be invited to view your next question and record your answer. You continue this way until all questions are answered and then you submit your interview back to us. Simple!
Now to the important bit, the hints & tips or maybe more accurately Do’s & Dont’s.
Hopefully that has given you some insight into our video interviews.
