In the age of the coronavirus, the setting and rules of interviewing have changed. The widespread adoption of video conferencing platforms has made conducting video interviews more viable and convenient than ever before. If done effectively, it can speed up the hiring process and help in the proper evaluation of candidates.
Move over to in-person interviews, as virtual interviews are gradually changing the way recruiters approach hiring. A virtual interview is much like an in-person interview, except that it happens remotely. In a virtual interview, the interviewer and the candidate meet over a video conference call or platform and exchange their views.
A recent report suggests that over 60% of HR managers have confessed using virtual and video interviews during the hiring process. Virtual interviews save the precious time of recruiters and candidates alike.
