How to Ace a Virtual Interview

Posted on March 2021

Virtual interview

​​As the coronavirus epidemic continues, more of us will be working from home. During this time, it is more likely that a candidate will be asked to interview via video conference call. Organizing, scheduling and conducting a video interview takes an employer half the time it would take to conduct an interview in-person.  

More large businesses within the professional sectors in Singapore have embraced using video interviews to include a larger pool of candidates and make hiring remotely much easier when seeking candidates overseas. Both the company and candidates lose out from travelling overseas for an in-person interview, whereas video interviews are fast and neat (if not entirely foolproof).  

You may be asked to take part in a live interview using video conference technology, or alternatively many candidates are asked to pre-record their answers to a set of questions in their own time so hiring managers can review candidates in their own time.

Which is the best location? What equipment do you need? What type of body language should you focus on? Download this thorough guide on how to ace your video job interview to find out.
