One-way video interviews are growing increasingly popular in Singapore. At the 2018 NUS Internship Day, 50% of companies in attendance reported that they use video interviews to assess prospective interns and full-time hires.
While video interviewing affords one the chance to interview in the comfort of your own home, candidates often report feeling awkward and uncomfortable when staring at a screen with no-one on the other end. Some also report feeling rushed seeing the countdown timer ticking away unforgivingly in the corner of the frame.
To navigate these unique challenges of one-way video interviewing, it is crucial to know how video interviews work, how to set up your tech and space optimally, look great, and practice wholeheartedly so that you enter these interviews feeling confident and comfortable.
