Although most employers were forced to adopt video interviewing due to lockdown restrictions, more than half of employers continue to use them after restrictions have been lifted. However, recent studies report many candidates can find video interviews more stressful than face-to-face interviews citing fears of dropped internet connections, interruptions and difficulty building rapport over video. And 7 in 10 candidates claim to have missed out on a job opportunity due to problems on a video interview.
The difference between successfully landing your next job or not could come down to how well you connect with hiring managers and how effectively you can show your capabilities online. In her presentation, “Enhance Your Video Presence for Successful Online Interviews,” Karla Wludyga delivers the tools necessary to build confidence, reduce stress and succeed with your online interviewing techniques.
