When your job-seeking clients land virtual interviews (video interviews, AI software interviews, etc.), use this done-for-you best practices tip sheet to pass along to them as-is or to provide you with an educational guide for your own coaching practices!
Virtual Interview Strategies are Now Essential for Job Seekers
While virtual interviewing existed well before the COVID-19 pandemic, the practice has skyrocketed in recent months, making it essential for job seekers to learn effective virtual interviewing strategies. We asked experts in the career industry to offer their insight on how you can make the most of the virtual interviewing process.
For this tip sheet, virtual interviewing is defined as any interview done with social distancing (i.e. telephone, video, text, with artificial intelligence, one-way video, etc.). Since the Coronavirus pandemic, face-to-face interviews are often avoided or postponed and companies are rapidly shifting to virtual interviewing since they see it as a means for business continuity during these times.
This 5-page tip sheet covers:
- Explanation of the five types of virtual interviews.
- 20 key strategies to prepare for the various types of virtual interviews.
- Differences between virtual and face-to-face interviews.
- Common virtual interview challenges and how to circumvent them.
