If you’ve been invited to a virtual job interview – congratulations!
But what is a virtual interview, exactly? The main difference between a virtual interview and an in-person interview is that virtual interviews occur via video (or sometimes via phone), usually through a video conferencing program (such as Zoom or Google Meet). More companies are adopting virtual interviews to streamline their hiring processes and narrow their large applicant pools more efficiently.
The good news for you is that meeting with potential employers over the web helps take away that nervous edge that typically comes with interviewing. Being in your own space allows you to feel more comfortable, act more naturally, and focus on growing a connection with the interviewer(s).
