How to nail a video interview?
This is post 1 in a series of 4 blog posts.
Even in an economic downturn we see an ever increasing number of job interviews. The underlying trends are clear: more free agents, more part-timers and shorter employment periods. In order to get the same number of seats filled, companies will need to interview ever more candidates. This holds true even in the economic downturn of the last few years and with the global economy picking up steam in 2014, this trend will further accelerate. On the other hand, in many European markets the unemployment rates remain high resulting in plenty of competition around job opportunities. Jobseekers therefore will need to be competitive and on top of their interview game to land their desired job.
