During these unprecedented times of lockdown, travel restrictions and social distancing due to Corvid-19 how does the recruitment industry, businesses and individuals conduct that first initial interview? Well – as with a lot of business meetings we are turning to technology and video conferencing facilities to undertake the interview process – a thing that was starting to emerge before the current crisis and is likely to be here to stay when things turn into the “New Normal” – at least for that initial interview! We found these 10 useful tips for successful video interviewing – applicable to both candidate and interviewer – on the HuffPost website! 

1 of 10: Test your connection.

Test your connection for Skype, Zoom, Google Hangout, or whatever interview platform you are specifically using. Be prepared to use the technology your interviewer prefers. Internet connectivity varies based on what you’re using and is also influenced by what else you have running (if there are others in your household, and everyone is streaming HD movies on Netflix, you get the idea). Do a test run to see how fast/ slow your connection is and to see if you will have any problems with video.
