What Is Video Interviewing?
Video interviewing is the practice of conducting an employment interview on the internet via video communication software, such as Skype or Facetime. There are two types of video interviews, a one-way video interview, and a video call. For one-way interviews, the employer gives candidates a series of questions and you record your interview video and send it for later review. In a video call type interview, you answer the video call when the interviewer calls and talk to the person over video. The conversation is in real time, unlike the one-way interview; you can see them and they can see you.
Video interviewing is becoming a common new trend among employers in the construction, engineering, and environmental industries. It is very cost and time efficient, and can be used anywhere in the world. Employers can learn everything they need to know, without all the travel and hassles of the interview process. Interviewing in this way can be very different than the face-to-face meetings used in construction, engineering, and environmental industries in the past. Rather than talking to someone in person, you will be talking to someone through a computer screen. It may feel a bit awkward talking to a face on a computer screen, but learning how you can prepare yourself can be a big help.
